The agent of Manchester United and Arsenal defensive target Daniele Rugani has indicated that the Italian is ready to leave Juventus.
The 23-year-old defender is considered one of the top young centre backs in Italy, but he has not been playing regular football at Juventus this season and has been an unused substitute in their last six league games.
Juventus have already rejected big money offers from Arsenal and Manchester United for Rugani and have been keen to hold on to the centre-back despite not playing him regularly.
However, the defender’s agent, Furio Fedele, has sang from a different hymn sheet and insisted given the 23-year-old’s situation, Rugani’s time at Juventus is approaching its last act.
He told Italian sports broadcaster Premium Sport when asked about the defender’s future at Juventus: “Knowing Juventus, I fear Rugani’s adventure at the Bianconeri has reached its end credits.”
Arsenal and Manchester United have been keeping tabs on the centre-back and given his agent’s words, they could possibly test the waters with Juventus again in the current transfer window.
Rugani, who has four caps for Italy, has a contract until 2021 with Juventus.
