Leonardo Bonucci has been one of the players of the season for his club Juventus, helping them to lift another Italian Serie A title along with the Coppa Italia. He was also instrumental in their Champions League campaign, which saw them reach the tournament’s final, where they were eventually beaten by the defending champions Real Madrid to end the season as runner-up.

The Italian defender’s superb display of form in both the domestic as well as European circuit has been the main reason behind interesting a number of big name clubs from all over Europe to make a bid for him in this summer transfer window. The current Premier League champions Chelsea have been one of the clubs who look to be the most interested in bagging the player for the next season.

Chelsea, who have been led to glory by their current manager Antonio Conte, has been the former coach of Juventus before Max Allegri took over and is well aware of the kind of strength the Azzurri centre-back will be able to impart to his team, given he agrees to leave his current club and join the English champions in the next term. However, the West London club will have to cough up some serious sum of money in order to sign Bonucci and they seem to be up for the task already.

Reportedly, the Blues are ready to make a bid amounting to £45 million for the 30-year-old defender to secure his services for the next term from the Italian Serie A champions in the summer. Conte is quite sure that Bonucci is going to be the perfect replacement for the veteran English defender, who has already decided to leave the club after they lifted their sixth Premier League title last season.

With the current 3-4-3 formation that has been followed by the Italian mastermind Conte, the Bianconeri defender at the heart of his defence can be the perfect player to strengthen the squad for the next season. Juventus has said that they don’t want any of their players to leave in the next season, though they will not stand in the way of anyone who wants to make a move away from the Juventus Stadium in the next summer.

Reportedly, the Blues are looking to make a bid for the Brazilian left back Alex Sandro from Juventus as well, who is going to cost them nearly £52 million, given his brilliant performance in the last season for his club.
