Miralem Pjanic and Daniele Rugani have been named in the Juventus squad for their United States tour despite speculation over their future, but World Cup stars including new signing Cristiano Ronaldo are absent.
Ronaldo, a €112million signing from Real Madrid, was not expected to be involved in the tour after having played in Portugal's four games in Russia.
Rugani will travel, though, despite the centre-back being linked with Chelsea, who are said to be close to concluding a deal worth in the region of €50m for the 23-year-old.
Pjanic is also part of the squad heading to the US, despite strong speculation he could also leave the Serie A champions.
