Bonucci considering three options

It’s not only Paris Saint-Germain that want Juventus defender Leonardo Bonucci, as Manchester City and New York City FC are also courting the Italy international.

According to Sportitalia journalist Alfredo Pedullà, three foreign teams have enquired about his availability, but so far with no genuine negotiations.

Pep Guardiola has said several times before that he considers Bonucci one of the best players in the world, not just for his defending, but the ability to play out from the back.

PSG were reported earlier to have offered the 32-year-old €7m a year in wages, but according to La Gazzetta dello Sport, new Coach Maurizio Sarri called the defender personally to reassure him that he is in his plans.

That could change, however, as with the potential arrival of Matthijs De Ligt from Ajax, the Bianconeri will have five central defenders in their ranks, including Merih Demiral and competition for a starting place could be fierce.

Meanwhile, Sarri previously worked with Daniele Rugani at Empoli,  so the 24-year-old could be entrusted with more time on the field this season, which in turn could see Bonucci potentially head for the exit.
