Pep Guardiola has clearly seen the need to shore up Manchester City’s defence for the new Premier League season and he may have got his man.
Back in February Guardiola referred to the Juventus centre back as one of his favourite players in the world and he had an excellent Euros as Italy surprised many with how good they were and they were unlucky to go out to Germany on penalties in the quarters.
So it’s no surprise that the former Bayern Munich manager is willing to spend big on the 29 year old former Bari centre back and according to reports Bonucci is willing to accept the bid from City.
BOOM! Manchester City had their offer for Bonucci accepted by the player, 8m€ per year! Now pending Juventus accepting the 60m€ bid

A 60 million euro bid for the defender would make him the second most expensive defender of all time coming in behind David Luiz from Chelsea to PSG.
It remains to be seen whether or not the Old Lady would be willing to sell Bonucci especially as one of the club’s other top stars is under a transfer cloud already.
Manchester United have reportedly tabled a bid up to 120 million euros for Paul Pogba and it’s unlikely the club would sell both players, maybe not even one of them.
