£48million international defender will join Chelsea - His club have already found a replacement


Juventus defender Leonardo Bonucci will leave the club to join Chelsea, Italian website SportFair has claimed.

The Italy international has a market transfer value of at least £48million and manager Antonio Conte wants him to strengthen the defensive department.

According to the article, the Bianconeri will replace the experienced defender with Lazio's Stefan de Vrij who is set to leave the Biancocelesti during the summer transfer window.

Chelsea have already released centre-back John Terry this summer and are in desperate need of a new defender ahead of next season's Premier League and Champions League.

Bonucci was at the heart of the Juventus defensive system this season and helped his side to win the Italian Serie A and reach the final of the Champions League.
