He’s definitely not the only one who was left speechless after realizing that the rumors about Leonardo Bonucci’s potential move to Milan were more than just rumors.
It looked like a joke, the news came like a bolt from the blue
Juventus legend Alessandro Del Piero told Sky Sport Italia, obviously still unable to believe that the deal can actually happen, that this whole thing is not a trick of some agent or the product of a journalist’s imagination.
It is a very, very amazing deal, I would not have thought about such a thing. I definitely didn’t expect it
the former Juve captain said, avoiding, though, criticizing either Bonucci or Juventus, as if realizing that if the deal is close to happening, both sides must have their reasons.
The 30-year-old defender has been fundamental in Juventus’ successes the last six seasons, winning every single Scudetto, three Coppa Italia titles, and reaching two Champions League finals as well.
According to reports, Milan are ready to pay 40 milion euros to Juventus, with the Italy international himself favoring a move to another Italian club, rather than a move abroad (Chelsea are said to have been monitoring his case for weeks now).
