£50million defender will snub Manchester City because he wants to play under Antonio Conte


Juventus defender Leonardo Bonucci will reject a move to Manchester City because he wants to join Chelsea.

The Citizens are ready to offer £50million to sign the strong centre-back who prefers to make a move to Stamford Bridge.

The only problem for Chelsea is Juventus coach Massimiliano Allegri who will never allow the club to sell one of the strongest defenders in Europe.

Last month, the Italian compared his defensive department to Lionel Messi and Cristiano Ronaldo in terms of what they bring to his squad.

"Our three defenders, Barzagli, Bonucci and Chiellini are incredible," Allegri said.

"They are as important as Lionel Messi.

"And Buffon's saves have the same meaning of Messi or Ronaldo's goals."
