I believe that Rugani is better than Caldara and we will regret this in the long run. Atm though, those 50mil will really help us balance those books and if we re-invest half of that, we will become CL contenders.
Maybe in the future, when Caldara and Rugani would be our starters and Cronaldo will retire from football, we will have difficulties at finding someone as good as Rugani to pair him with Caldara.
But here and now, the Chiellini+Godin partnership for the next 2-3 years will be the best in the world.

You watched Caldara like 2 times, yet you know he's worse than Rugani.

I think this will happen.

I mean Sarri knows Daniele Rugani well from his time by Empoli. And to be honest, Rugani is a really really good defender, but he misses the so called 'Juve DNA'. He is a little bit too soft and miss the winning mentality. He is not the 'You should not pass' wall like Chiello is.

My dream is a young pair of Italian cb's in the future. Caldara - Rugani looked possible, but if we sell. We maybe get Romagna, Romagnoli or an other defender? I want ItalJuve :p

Chelsea/Sarri really want Rugani. They made a nice offer. The player wants to stay and Juve want to keep him. You never know with the mercato but for now that's the situation. Rugani would gladly stay here another 10 years. - Rugani's agent Davide Torchia

The players will is the most important thing

Davide Torchia: "Rugani expects to play more games. However ambition must not be confused with presumption. He would like to stay at Juve for another 10 years. Then it is normal that he would like to play more than anyone else. Of course, with the arrival of Bonucci.." RadioVS


Yeah, I think he's leaving

From his quotes, you sense that Rugani is going to make a practical decision than an emotional one. Practical decision being, earning more money at Chelsea and playing more games under a coach he knows very well.

Ofcourse he'd like to stay at Juve for 10 years if he could(with him being a fan and all) but you gotta look out for your career growth too.

This is what I can gather from what his agent is trying to say.

Thing is it's not any different at Chelsea. Maybe slightly easier to play but not exactly easy. Cahill, Zouma, Rudiger, Lulz on the bench, Christiansen,

And we're selling Caldara and Pjanic and Sandro and probably Dybala too, right? :baus:

Cahill will be moved on. That's what I'm reading.

I don't know about Luiz. Was linked to Napoli earlier this month.

Atleast 1 if not 2 CB's will leave Chelsea.

Also wouldn't you think Sarri would favour him over others ?

I never said that. If Rugani leaves , Caldara stays. But if we don't sell Rugani , I fear about that shitty swap deal.

Maybe to begin with but Chelsea in the PL is not Empoli in Italy, it's a brand new experience.

I can see where you're coming from with the practical choice, especially with Caldara coming in. Obviously if Bonucci comes in he's almost got no choice, but I'd rather it stays as the status quo, or worst case scenario Bonucci for Benatia. And I do mean worst case there... Our balance is nice as it is.

First off I'd like to start with a few accurate statements


Wow, people are pretty hyped about Rugani. Been a fan long enough to know that whatever he has shown until now means almost nothing. Bright Italian starlets tend to burn out fast nowadays.

Empoli have conceded 14, the 4th worst defence in the league. This guy sucks

Someone explain me whats so special about this guy?

I'm still waiting for an answer myself


watch him flop here like criscito. rakib tears will flow for years

I hate to give you credit for something you trolled your way into being right


And now for a couple of swings and misses:


no Barzagli
Ogbonna stays
Matiello
next generation with rugani Matiello

I don't understand this Ogbonna criticism either. IMO Bonucci is a bigger liability and scoring goals or making through passes doesn't make up for it at all. In my world a CB is pure defending, especially if you play with a deep lying playmaker like Pirlo or Marchisio. Ogbonna is never overrun BC he's the fastest man alive after Ursain Bolt, and given his age he's still to peak just like Barzagli did it once he turned 29. I'd rather make some money on BonBon and bring in Rugani as potential replacement.

Caceres is seen as a rb, so our cbs are barzagli, bonucci, chiellini, ogbonna, and rugani. We do not know how Barzagli will turn out and how many more years he has. Ogbonna is staying, there is no reason he should leave.

I hope you do realize that Ogbonna wont be losing a place in this team. He has been great when called upon, rugani will ultimately occupy Barzaglis spot in this club.

Yes lets forget about his talent, the fact that he is able to play games and not get a yellow card makes him the real deal.

He seems ready for his chance imo.
Hopefully he will be our next CB leader in the near future after Barza.

I'm kind of happy that Chelsea are not considering him anymore. I have a feeling, if he stays, he will finally claim his place in the starting 11.

I've seen massive improvement in his passing game along with his usual high concentration levels. Hopefully, Caldara stays too and we lock our defense for the future.
