Juventus Urged To Offer Rugani A New Contract As Their Row With Cristiano Ronaldo Continues

Written By Onyeka Daniel

It’s looking like another trophy-less season for Juventus after they faltered in recent matches, and this has seemingly given Inter Milan the advantage in the Scudetto race, as the Nerazzurri seem to be on another level, winning matches for fun.

For the Bianconeri, it could be a chance to rejuvenate their squad, getting rid of some players that have been playing less and at a reduced level. One of such player is Italian defender, Daniele Rugani, but the club have been urged to instead offer him a new deal rather than look to get rid of him.

He scored a last-gasp winner against Frosinone on Sunday, but his agent insists his future at Juventus is not up to him. ‘Will the club call us’ to discuss a new contract? The central defender had a rare start in the absence of Danilo and made it count.

He pounced on a flicked-on corner to drill in from a tight angle and decide the 3-2 victory on Sunday to help them get their first win in their last five games. He made only 14 appearances this season between Serie A and the Coppa Italia, surprisingly contributing three goals to the team, despite playing in the back three.

Rugani is only under contract with Juventus until June 30 and there seems to be no discussion about an extension. “Juve have always been very positive towards him. As far as we are concerned, we are totally open to a renewal and can reach an agreement,” his agent, Davide Torchia told TV Play. “The question we need to ask now is: will the club call us?”

He started in the Empoli youth academy and joined Juventus in 2012, having been on their books ever since, save for some loan spells at Empoli, Stade Rennais and Cagliari. The centre-back will turn 30 in July and has seven senior caps for Italy.

Meanwhile…

Cristiano Ronaldo continues his legal battle with former club Juve over the €19.5m in outstanding wages and a decision is expected at the end of April. The row has been going ever since he left Turin for a return to Manchester United in August 2021, with the Ballon d’Or winner insisting he was still owed €19.5m in wages.

Juve maintain he had signed away the rights to any outstanding money when completing the transfer to Manchester United, a situation that was rushed through on deadline day. Ronaldo requested arbitration in June 2023 and Calcio e Finanza inspected the documentation confirming there was another hearing on February 5.

The Collegio Arbitrale court is expected to give its verdict by April 22. A note from the Juventus lawyers insists “the club considers the former player’s demands to be unfounded” and they are so confident that no extra funds have been set aside in case they lose the case. Ronaldo is still playing and made the move to Al-Nassr in the Saudi Pro League as a free agent in January 2023.
