Chelsea boss wants reunion with former defender
Juventus defender Leonardo Bonucci is open to a move away from the club this summer and Chelsea are interested in signing him, per the Metro.
Bonucci, 30, helped Juve win a sixth consecutive Serie A title this season, as well as reaching the Champions League final, which they lost 4-1 to Real Madrid in Cardiff on Saturday.
The Italian is regarded as one of Europe’s best defenders, with his former boss Antonio Conte, now with Chelsea, keen on a reunion.
The article suggests the player may be more receptive to leaving his homeland this summer, as he looks to win Europe’s premier club competition before he retires.
It is believed he rejected a mega-money move to Manchester City last summer, but it is not yet known whether Pep Guardiola is still interested in striking a deal.

Bonucci’s future has been the subject of speculation all season, having had a public spat with current boss Maximiliano Allegri a few months ago.
