Chelsea made an unthinkable offer to sign Juventus defender Daniele Rugani, according to his agent Davide Torchia.
Chelsea were interested in signing the centre-back but Juventus refused to sell despite Chelsea’s mammoth offer.
“Juventus have no desire to sell him, not even for a high price which, among other things, no-one in Italy could afford,” Torchia said, according to Daily Express.
“However, the player has never asked to leave.
“Only when a very important offer arrives is it normal to listen, but Juventus have rejected all kinds of offers to keep him in Turin.
“Chelsea made a really big bid, which was close to being unthinkable for me, but Juventus didn’t relent.
“[Sami] Khedira played only 10 more games than Daniele last season. I think Rugani can play even more this season.”
