Real Madrid rival AC Milan with swap bid for Bonucci

AC Milan set to sign Chelsea and Manchester City transfer target Leonardo Bonucci

Leonardo Bonucci is on the brink of leaving Juventus to join AC Milan, with the defender's agent saying that he is "working on" an exit for his client after widespread reports in Italy had said a deal was on the cards.

Milan are eager to sign the 30-year-old but Juventus have no intention of selling to a rival.

Alessandro Lucci - Bonucci's agent - already admitted that he and the player were working on securing a move away from Turin for the defender, and the Rossoneri have emerged as firm favourites to land the Italy worldwide. The problem is that Milan are now only offering €30 million. It's just come like a bolt from the blue. He was linked with Chelsea and Manchester City earlier this summer, but a desire to stay in Italy leaves him with a move to Milan, who have splashed significant cash this summer.

But even if we allow for the possibility that Juventus suddenly designated Bonucci non-essential personnel, why wouldn't have they sold to the Premier League instead, from where they could've gotten a fair bit larger transfer fee?

Bonucci has established himself as one of the best defenders in the world right now and was imperious in Juventus' run to the UEFA Champions League final last season. Bonucci and Allegri were apparently involved in another heated argument.

Having discussed the situation with Bonucci's agent, it's added in the report that Milan will now look to take their offer to Juventus for the Italian worldwide to try and get a deal done.
