Serie A star rejects Manchester City switch again

Manchester City are trying again to bring Leonardo Bonucci to England, it’s reported, but he is committed to Juventus now more than ever.

According to Goal.com reporter Romeo Agresti, the Premier League champions are going to make another attempt to sign Bonucci over the summer.

Pep Guardiola said repeatedly over the years that Bonucci is his ideal centre-back, because he is able to start moves with long, raking passes.

However, Bonucci turns 33 next week and only signed a new contract in November, holding him to the Turin giants until June 2024.

Above all, he learned from the dismal one-season spell at Milan in 2017-18 that leaving the Juventus jersey behind can have more risks than rewards.
