Should Juve let Rugani join Serie A rivals Napoli?

Following Khalid Koulibaly and Raul Albiol’s struggles last term, Maurizio Sarri has pick up the pieces in Napoli’s defense as the Partenopei have only conceded two goals - against Juventus and Fiorentina - in the last five Serie A fixtures.

Despite this, the new manager in charge at the Stadio San Paolo wants to add another piece to his  -almost – perfect defense.  It is not a matter of secrecy that the 56 year old thinks extremely high of Juventus’ Daniele Rugani, a central defender who thrived in the last season at Empoli, under the current Azzurri’s boss.

It is clear that former Tottenham Vlad Chiriches is struggling to adapt to life in Naples and Sarri wants Rugani to join the San Paolo in the next transfer window. Trouble is, will Juve let their starlet join a huge Serie A rivals?

The 21 year old has only played two minutes – literally – under Massimiliano Allgri this term. According to the Bianconeri manager, Rugani still still doesn't stick to the level required to become a senior Juventus defender. As we previously reported, the Bianconeri were also proposed a shocking swap between Bayern Munich’s Medhi Benatia and Kinsley Coman. The arrival of the former Roma at the Juventus Stadium would definitely scupper Rugani’s Juventus ambitions.

According to the calciomercato.com’s journalist Giovanni Scotto, Rugani could join Napoli in January, on a loan deal with a € 20 million buy-out clause. Nevertheless, the Partenopei could also offer Juventus to add a buy-back clause that could give Bianconeri the option to bring Rugani back in Turin.

Now, the question is whether Juve should sell Rugani and reinforce a Serie A rivals or leave the central defender on his wake, waiting for him to grease the cogs at the Juventus Stadium.
