Juventus Come to Terms on New Contract with Rugani

Daniele Rugani and Juventus have been in touch to discuss a new deal for a few months. Things accelerated thanks to a meeting with his agent before the Bologna game. The two parties had already concurred to stick together. They put the finishing touches on the numbers on Monday, Alfredo Pedullà reported.

The defender will get a two-year contract with an appearance-based option to extend it automatically for one further season. He’ll put pen to paper before the weekend.

Rugani will have a clause to be released if he’s not in the plans of the next Juventus coach for some reason or another. He’ll shave his salary and earn €2.1M plus add-ons in the next campaigns.

Napoli inquired about the backup in recent weeks, but he’s comfortable in Turin and decided to keep his word. His previous deal would have expired on June 30th.

The 29-year-old joined Juventus from Empoli back in 2015 and has racked up 147 appearances at the club. He also spent time at Rennes and Cagliari on loan in recent campaigns when Massimiliano Allegri wasn’t at the helm.

Our Take on Juventus and Rugani

With nothing more to play for, it’s time for them to finally focus on the much-awaited renewals. This was one of the easiest ones. He’s been a steady deputy in the last couple of years but his wages were a tad high for his role. They have bigger fishes to fry in the back and other positions.
