The Bianconeri and Rugani put pen to paper on a multi-year deal.

Juventus released a club statement today announcing the deal had officially been completed.

“Daniele Rugani has today committed his long-term future to Juventus, renewing his contract for another five years which will keep him with the club until 2021.

“Since signing from Empoli in the summer of 2015, the towering Tuscan has made 29 appearances for the Bianconeri, playing in 26 victories and posting impressive defensive statistics in the process, not least the 37 interceptions made and 123 times he has regained possession – clear results of his intelligent reading of the game, combined with ever increasing physical strength.

“At the age of just 22, Rugani still has plenty of time on his side to keep growing into the world-class defender he’s destined to become and, thanks to today’s contract renewal, do so in the colours of Juventus.”

Rugani has stepped up in the absence of Juve’s BBC defense as Barzagli, Bonucci and Chiellini have suffered from injuries this season.
