Daniele Rugani has officially left Juventus to join Stade Rennais on loan, with no option to buy, at a reported cost of €1.5m.
According to multiple sources, the deal is worth €1.5m with Rennes covering his salary for the entire 2020-21 season.
However, there is no option or obligation to buy, so Rugani will return to Turin next summer, although that’s not clear from the wording of the club statement.
“The paths of Juventus and Daniele Rugani have gone their separate ways. The defender, who has been with Juventus since the 2015/16 season, will play for Stade Rennais this season on loan,” read the press release.
“Thus, closes a story, that between Daniele and the Lady, was made up of victories, growth, and mutual satisfaction. With us, Rugani won plenty of silverware; five Scudetti, three Italian Cups and two Super Cups.
“During this time, he never once lacked in commitment and seriousness, all while showcasing his love for the jersey.
“In total, Rugani raked in 101 appearances across all competitions whilst wearing the Juventus jersey, taking to the field for 8033 minutes in these five years. In addition, he also has seven goals to his name, with all of six of them coming off the back of a set piece situation, three from the corner and three from a free-kick.
“As such, a long journey has come to an end: Rugani first turned out for Juventus in 2012/2013, when he played for the Primavera side. Now, he walks away with a glistening trophy cabinet and countless memories.
“And when a good story comes to an end, we can only thank Daniele for the memories and his contribution. All the best, Daniele!”
