Rennes agree loan deal for Juventus defender Rugani

Rennes have landed a big coup by agreeing a deal with Juventus for Italy defender Daniele Rugani.

According to RMC Sport, Rugani will join Rennes on a season-long loan from the Italian champions

Rugani, 26, will arrive in Rennes this evening for a medical and his contract signing.

Rennes are paying a loan fee of around €1.5m for Rugani, who is eager for game time ahead of next year’s Euros.

Valencia and Newcastle also held talks with Juventus, but Rennes are able to offer Champions League football.

Rennes are also finalising a loan deal for Inter’s Brazilian left-back Dalbert.

The Ligue 1 side were paired with Sevilla, Chelsea and Krasnodar in yesterday’s Champions League draw.

It will mean a quick return to Rennes for Edouard Mendy, the goalkeeper they recently sold to Chelsea.

3/10 UPDATE:

Rugani’s loan move to Rennes has now been made official by the French side.
