Juventus’ Leonardo Bonucci In Milan Talks
Bonucci could leave Juve but still stay in Italy.
Milan are reportedly lining up a potential deal for Juventus’ defender Leonardo Bonucci, reports in Italy claim.
The 30-year-old is once again in high demand this summer after helping the Italian champions retain their Serie A crown last season. In addition, it is believed that he wants a change of environment, but not outside the borders of Italy due to family reasons.
That is where the Rossoneri have decided to swoop in, as they already spoke to agent Alessandro Lucci the past few days to enquire whether he would be interested in a San Siro move. The Milanese club is yet to speak with Juventus, according to Sky Italia.
Juventus have set their asking price at €40-45 million, but Milan plan on including defender Matta De Sciglio as part of the deal for Bonucci, but not Alessio Romagnoli. “We are working on Bonucci’s sale”, admitted agent Lucci to SportItalia, adding that more news should follow in the coming hours.
Bonucci, who scored 5 goals in 45 appearances in all competitions for the Turin side last season, has also been linked with a move to the Premier League, with Manchester City and Chelsea interested in his signature.
