Updates from top sources: Duo set for Juve renewal
- Both Miralem Pjanic & Daniele Rugani are expected to get a renewal on improved terms at the club
According to Gazzetta dello Sport, Juventus are ready to offer playmaker Miralem Pjanic a renewal with a remarkable salary increase, while Corriere Dello Sport report pretty much the same move is going to happen with regard to centre-back Daniele Rugani.
The Italian's situation has never been completely clear throughout this summer, however, as it stands, the centre-back never wanted to leave the Bianconeri. Previously Rugani was said to be very close to a move to Chelsea, who had made a €50m offer for the defender.

Rugani, however, travelled to the United States for the Old Lady's pre-season tour but the offer for him was being considered. Moreover, according to Gazzetta dello Sport, Juventus now consider Rugani unsellable and will let the defender decide over his future despite the Blues' links.
As for the Bosnian, according to multiple reports in the Italian media, Juventus are reportedly set indeed to hand a new contract to Chelsea and Manchester City target Miralem Pjanic. Chelsea recently made an offer for him, with Manchester City, set to do the same soon. It's been believed that Pjanic is set to extend his stay at Juventus this summer and the club are now set to offer a new deal in the coming few days.
