Regardless of the position of current manager Antonio Conte, Chelsea owner Roman Abramovich is reportedly pursuing the transfer of AC Milan defender Leonardo Bonucci.
Since leaving Juventus for Milan last summer, the 30-yeard-old Italian has not been at his best, regardless of being regarded as one of the top centre-backs in world football.
Despite the potential change of manager at Stamford Bridge ahead of next season, it seems Abramovich retains an interest in him. Calciomercato have previously linked both Chelsea and Manchester City with interest in the £37million-rated player.
According to Daily Mail, Conte could be on the brink of the sack after a difficult season at Chelsea, with Sky Sports recently reporting on Luis Enrique’s potential arrival at the club to replace the Italian tactician.
Spanish sources also, like Don Balon, claims that Italian defender remains on British club’ radar.
The Blues lack confidence in defence, which resulted in a goal last night against Barcelona. Chelsea even struggle to finish in the top four in 2017/18 after some poor recent results, despite strolling to the title last term.
