Chelsea to move for £35 million defender
Chelsea are set to reignite their interest in Leonardo Bonucci as per reports in talkSPORT.
The Italian defender is not happy with life at AC Milan and is reportedly looking to leave the club. The centre-back joined them from Juventus for a reported price of £35 million.
Chelsea were interested in signing Bonucci during the summer of 2016 and 2017. But the defender decided to rebuff their interest as he wanted to remain in Italy for various reasons.
Apart from Chelsea, Manchester City were also interested in signing him. Pep Guardiola is also looking for a defender in January and might make a move too.
David Luiz is not happy with his situation at Stamford Bridge and is looking to leave as well. The Blues might use the cash they get from the Brazilian’s sale and make the move for Bonucci.
