Manchester City's offer for Leonardo Bonucci is causing Juventus problems, as they may be forced to raise the player's salary.

The Citizens have joined Antonio Conte's Chelsea in making a bid for the 29-year-old defender, in spite of insistent reports suggesting the Old Lady will never sell him.

The Citizens have joined Antonio Conte's Chelsea in making a bid for the 29-year-old defender, in spite of insistent reports suggesting the Old Lady will never sell him.

According to La Gazzetta dello Sport, Manchester City are now pressing as hard as they can on the player himself. Their projected salary of €8m per season for five years would see the player more than double his current €3.7m wages, and the offer is apparently tempting him.

Juventus can solve the problem by renewing Bonucci's contract and raising his salary in the process. They are reluctant to make the move, however, as that may open the floodgates for various other Bianconeri to demand a raise.
