BONUCCI OFFERED TO PREMIER LEAGUE GIANT
Euro 2016 star for the Italian national team Leonardo Bonucci has been offered to premier League giant Manchester City, according to latest reports.
The head coach of City Pep Guardiola is an open admirer of the Italian player and has openly praised the defender, calling him one of his “favourite ever players.”
Manchester City was reported to have been approached for the services of the 29-year old player as the club looks at releasing the player. It was not the other way round as it usually is.
A third party was reported to have instigated the talks for the Serie A champions, and fans, helped by a stan james promo code that gave them double odds, started putting money on the move happening.
Bonucci’s value went up as interest from top clubs increased. Man City and Chelsea were amongst those interested, with Blues boss Antonio Conte previously working with the player at Juventus and as Italy’s boss. City is reported to have made a bid of £38 million but the club wants City to take him for £50 million. The club is believed to have signed Bayern Munich’s Medhi Benatia in a bid to get the Italian off its books.
Manchester City could offer the player £132,000 in weekly wages which would sum up to £3.2 million a season on a five year deal. Bonucci currently earns £3.2 million a season at the Turin-based outfit and the club doesn’t want to increase the wages of the player, according to reports from Gazzetta dello Sport. Whilst he doesn't really need to search the internet for a gala casino bonus code to try to make the most of his money, being able to triple or quadruple his current wage has to be at least a little bit tempting.
Chelsea are still in talks with the hope to land Napoli’s Kalidou Koulibaly even as Everton is dragging the player with them, they hope to lure the player. Conte knows he might likely lose out on Roma’s Kostas Manolas even though there is also the option of Shkodran Mustafi from Valencia. City might not offer as much for the player even though Juve want him to move on with his career away from the club.
