    Can't find any recent thread on him, so created this one. Looking like he may be available this summer and Chelsea are pursuing him actively, around the 45 million mark is the fee quoted. Would love to see United make a late move for him, seems to have the lot in his game and would excel in the Premier League.
    We could even use Juve' long term interest in Martial if some kind of swap deal could be arranged.

    Why would we hold interest in him when instead we can go for the absolutely obvious and overpriced transfers like Alderweireld and Maguire. Crazy talk

    So he isn't even first choice player, 24 (in 2 days) year old who started just 22, 11, 11 league games in last 3 seasons will fetch them nearly 50 million.

    So Rugain will cost nearly 50 million and he isn't overpriced? He is a sub player at Juventus and started grand total of 44 league games in 3 seasons.

    To be fair he is behind 3 of the best defenders in the game/

    Barzagli has barely played in last few seasons, Benatia started just 14 and 19 league games (think because of injuries).

    I have no idea how good he is, just looks high price for a player who isn't playing regularly.

    Juventus just trying to the balance the books after Ronny transfer. They’re trying to create a 50m price tag for a defender who is a sub. Good luck to them, let’s see who bites.

    I remember him being highly rated a few years back when he was linked with us and Arsenal. It seems he has not developed much after that
    I even asked resident Juve fan Bepi and even he didn't seem really bothered by Rugani leaving as they have a more promising youngster on loan.
    Rugani ain't even a youngster anymore, he's 24
    I don't even know why Chelsea unwed another CB unless they are planning on playing 3 at the back

    Every year Chelsea are linked to a Serie A based CB that they probably will not sign.
