Real Madrid will start a new battle with an important European team to close Leonardo Bonucci’s signing. Zinedine Zidane wants to sign a full back and he is thinking in one of the best defenders of the world. Bonucci will be a perfect signing because Pepe will leave Madrid at the end of the season and Jesus Vallejo may stay one year more in his experience at Germany, where he is playing really good and he is growing as a player.
Manchester City also want the Italian defender and they are preparing an offer of €57M. Guardiola tried to sing him last year, but Bonucci decided to stay at Juventus. Real Madrid seem to start with certain disadvantage, especially since the Spanish League is not among the predilections of the Italian full back. Bonucci thinks he can play in a higher level in the Premier League because of his physical conditions. The French manager wants to sign him because he thinks he woulda Pepe’s perfect substitute, but his target won’t be easy.
Bonucci arrived to Juventus in the 2010/2011 season. The the Italian side paid for him an amount of €15.5M to Bari. Since his signing with the giant Italian club, Bonucci has been one of the most important players at Juventus and in the Italian national team. He has won with Juventus seven times the Serie A and three times the Italian Cup, being a key player for all the coaches who managed the Italian side. The full back has said several times that he will like to have a new experience in another team, and that’s the reason why several European powerful squads want to sign him. He don’t have a good relationship with the current manager, Massimiliano Allegri, and if the Italian coach continues at Juventus another year more, Bonucci could leave the team when the season ends.
