The Premier League winners are unlikely to secure a bargain for the Italian centre-back once the transfer market reopens.

Manchester City manager Pep Guardiola is excited to tempt Leonardo Bonucci into Etihad Stadium this summer, but Goal has heard that Juventus don’t have any intention of promoting one of the prized assets.

Bonucci has spent nearly all his 13 years as an expert on Juve’s novels, racking up 372 appearances in complete whilst putting his hands on 14 big trophies.

The 32-year-old chose the surprise choice to combine Milan 2017 after spending the past seven seasons in the Juventus Stadium but returned a year later after acknowledging that he missed his home in Turin.

He’s since slotted back into the core of the Juve defence, and has been rewarded for his performances using a bumper brand new contract extension last November.

The Bianconeri was able to tie Bonucci down to new terms set to operate until 2024, together with all the centre-back now expected to determine the remainder of his career using the reigning Serie A champions.

But, Juve are not ready to sanction the Italy global’s departure, together with his existence in Maurizio Sarri’s squad believed vital for its continuing growth of Matthijs de Ligt and Merih Demiral.

Daniele Rugani is the sole defender place to leave Juve this season, and they’re now working on a new contract to get club captain Giorgio Chiellini, who’s expected to be a free agent at the end of June.

Guardiola will probably have to look elsewhere to get defensive reinforcements, as City continue to make do without Aymeric Laporte, who’s missed most of the 2019-20 year through injury.

RB Leipzig’s Dayot Upamecano, Inter enforcer Milan Skriniar and Napoli celebrity Kalidou Koulibaly have been connected with the Premier League winners lately, however, no formal offers have been filed as of yet.

It’s been suggested it will be problematic for top nightclubs to perform business later in the year on account of this coronavirus pandemic, which will be very likely to have a damaging effect on finances.

City were second from the English top-flight prior to their program was postponed in March, also had their sights to an exceptional lap after winning the Carabao Cup while at the same time qualifying for the latter phases of their Champions League and FA Cup.
