Manchester City’s Spanish coach Pep Guardiola wants to strengthen its defensive line and is desperately looking for candidates to bring central defenders to England. According to SkySports, Pep wanted to bring Juventus’s Leonardo Bonucci to Manchester this time, however, it seems the defender has declined to the offer.
Bonucci, flattered by the proposal of Pep, has chosen to reunite with his former teammate Andrea Pirlo, who is the new coach of Juventus now. SkySports even says that refusal has been so rapid that it could not reach to negotiations.
This is why Manchester City is looking elsewhere for the right man to strengthen the defense, currently, their favorite option is Napoli’s Koulibaly. Bonucci was Pirlo’s first teammate, wearing the Juventus shirt between 2011 and 2015 and also both of them played for the Italian national team.
The 33-year-old desires to play under the instructions of Andrea Pirlo, his former teammate, to ultimately fulfill their long-awaited Champions League dream.
