Bonucci to renew Juve contract?

Juventus will discuss a contract renewal with Leonardo Bonucci, as player and club seem set to ignore Manchester City’s €60m offer.

Pep Guardiola’s admiration for the centre-back is no secret and his profile grew considerably with his performances at Euro 2016.

Manchester City are believed to be offering up to €60m to take Bonucci to the Premier League.

However, according to today’s edition of Tuttosport, Juventus and the defender are not interested in this transfer.

Instead, they will meet up over the next couple of weeks to discuss a contract renewal with improved wages.

Naturally, these would not even approach the €8m per year available at Manchester City, as Juventus have a salary cap of €4.5m.

The 29-year-old's most recent extension was in 2015 and he is under contract with Juve until June 2020.
