ABSOLUTE BARGAIN

Juventus willing to sell Leonardo Bonucci to Milan for a fee that’ll make English clubs weep

Juve have reportedly quoted Milan a fee of €40million for the 30-year-old defender, who's also interesting Chelsea and Man City

In 2011 AC Milan allowed Andrea Pirlo to leave for Juventus, a decision they came to regret as the midfielder won four Serie A titles in a row.

But Juventus, ever the good sports, are intent on repaying the favour by selling Milan arguably the best defender in world football for what is, in today’s market, a bargain fee.

Juve have requested €40million off Milan for the central-defender, who’s been capped 70 times by Italy, according to Di Marzio.

When converted into pound sterling the fee Juventus are asking for Bonucci is around £35mil, only £5m less than what Everton paid for Michael Keane.

Are Juventus really that guilty about taking Pirlo on a free?

Milan have already had arguably the best transfer window in world football, strengthening their first-team with several high quality arrivals.

If Bonucci does join he could complete a brand new back four, alongside Ricardo Rodriguez, Mateo Musacchio and Andrea Conti.

Milan’s midfield has been bolstered by free-kick specialist Hakan Calhanoglu and defensive midfielder Franck Kessie, who’ll both be providing for Andre Silva.

They’ve even had the time to take the p*** in the transfer market, buying Gianluigi Donnarumma’s brother, Antonio, and signing Fabio Borini on loan.

But Juventus are well stacked in defence, with Giorgio Chiellini joined by Andrea Barzagli, Medhi Benatia and Daniele Rugani.

Having won the last six Serie A titles in a row it’s probably about time Juventus level up the playing field.

Shame clubs aren’t so willing to cooperate when English sides are involved.
