According to reports from The Sun, Chelsea could sign Juventus centre-back Leonardo Bonucci this summer in a deal worth £48million plus midfielder Nemanja Matic.
No doubt, the Italy international is one of the top defenders in world football, winning twelve trophies in the last seven seasons, and would be the ideal addition for Chelsea’s back three, having made a career from excelling in that set-up for the Old Lady.
But it feels like Chelsea are getting the rawer end of the deal. After all, Bonucci is already 30 years of age and although Nemanja Matic’s place in the starting XI became less guaranteed towards the end of the season, he’s still a top-quality midfielder – one who Transfermarkt value at £29.75million.
