Rumours are starting to emerge that Leonardo Bonucci is unhappy at Juventus and has asked to be sold in January.

The 35-year-old Italian centre back has not looked his best this season, being one of many Bianconeri players to suffer during their sluggish start to the season. He was relegated to the bench for the 1-0 derby win over Torino yesterday but did make an appearance in the second half.

As reported by journalist Giulio Mola, Bonucci’s relationship with coach Massimiliano Allegri has seemingly broken down and the defender has asked Juventus to sell him in the upcoming January transfer window.

Some rumours also link him with a move to Antonio Conte’s Tottenham, although his performances this season suggest that he may struggle with the speed of the Premier League.

The 35-year-old Bonucci has made six Serie A appearances so far this season, for a total of 410 minutes. In that time, he’s scored one goal but failed to show his best defensively. 

12 thought on “Bonucci looking for Juventus departure, rumours suggest”
  1. sold, which club would want a 35yr old, not like he will accept a sub role, dont believe this, to be honest he needs to retire

  2. Keep hin till the season is over and get rid of him along with Rugani, Sandro, Rabiot, Arthur, Zakaria, Cuadradro, McKennie, Kean and of course Allegri.

  3. Bad mix happening to him:

    – team struggling.
    – numerous players (ronaldo, di ligt) not having faith in allegri. now bonucci.
    – getting older.
    – not having chiellini next to him for the first time in a long time.

  4. Even he is getting tired of PhD Max’s wilderness zombienaccio. At his age he has won most there is to achieve in the game. He has made his money and can live a comfortable life. Why ruin what is already failing. Engine is not as good as it was, exhaust is faulty and most importantly the carburetor cannot be fixed when you have the legend of yoga back back as the mechanic.

  5. BS yellow press story. A few days ago reports claim Bonucci is with Allegri. Now all of a sudden he’s against him.

  6. Undoubtedly one of the worlds best defenders and if he was 6 years younger I would have had him in the Spur’s side in a flash, but at 35 I doubt he has the speed or the stamina to survive in the EPL, maybe his best bet is to retire at the end of the season
