Juventus’ Leonardo Bonucci 4/7 to join Manchester City this summer
Competition: Premier League
Market: Bonucci to join Man City
Odds: 4/7 @ William Hill
Manchester City have been stepping up their pursuit for a ball-playing centre-back this summer, and Juventus defender Leonardo Bonucci remains a target despite past approaches for the Italian having been rebuffed by the club.
City saw a lucrative bid for the experienced defender rejected by Juventus early this summer, but new manager Pep Guardiola isn’t going to give up on Bonucci without a fight. Juventus are keen to keep their star man given his form in the last season, but his skill set could transform City into a side more reflecting their manager’s philosophy.
Leonardo Bonucci is expert at bringing the ball out of defence and starting attacks from deep with long-range passes. For Italy in this summer’s Euro 2016, Bonucci was seen as the chief playmaker with how effective he could be with the ball at his feet, and such qualities are why City won’t stop with their pursuit for his signature.
The Manchester giants are looking for a centre-back who can keep keep possession and create counter-attacks with one cutting pass. Bonucci is seen as the best in the world in this role, and with the Sky Blues having all the money to tempt him to the Etihad, Bonucci is 4/7 with William Hill to join Man City for Juventus.
