Chelsea handed boost in pursuit of Cahill replacement

Timothy Aiyeku



Daniele Rugani

Chelsea have long been linked with Juventus central defender Daniele Rugani with a deal seeming difficult but latest development hints that this could be the time to have the player.

This is because of the reports that negotiations between the club and Rugani’s representatives have stalled which means he might be forced to leave.

Reports, therefore, claims that there are no talks on the table at the moment with the player which places the West London side in the best position to have the central defender at the Stamford Bridge.

Manager Maurizio Sarri is believed to be a fan of the central defender and will not hesitate on a bid for him once the transfer window opens so as to have his signature.

There are no fears of release clause for the player knowing that the Chelsea boss has won the heart of his employers and has been given the backing to have some deals done in the January window.

Suggestions are that the West London club will ensure Rugani who is of a younger age comes in as a replacement for Gary Cahill whose future at the Stamford Bridge is unsure.

A deal for Rugani could only mean the end for Cahill at the Stamford Bridge.
