It’s been an incredible season for the Chelsea fans in the Transfer Tavern, who are entirely hopeful of seeing their beloved Blues hold the Premier League title aloft at the end of the season.
Antonio Conte has changed a side on its knees last season to the most dominant team in the English elite, with our west London locals delighted about life under his watch right now. Hopeful of seeing the Italian stay for years to come, the Blues in the bar are dreaming about a long-term project at last.
Which is why reports from the Sun have gone down such a storm with those from SW6 today. They claim the Stamford Bridge titans could make a move for Juventus defender Leonardo Bonucci in the summer, after recent goings on in Turin.
Widely regarded as one of the finest central defenders in the world, the 29-year-old had a public falling out with manager Max Allegri and was dropped for their Champions League clash with Porto. With exciting options emerging for the Serie A champions, the Azzurri ace could reportedly be sold if a bid of around £42m is made.
Having worked with Conte at both Juve and the Italian national team, the idea of him replacing John Terry in central defence is a mouth-watering one for the Chelsea fans in our bar.
Could Bonucci actually sign for Chelsea? Let us know below…
