Chelsea fans in the Transfer Tavern are cracking open a bottle of bubbly to celebrate, after reports stated they’ve sealed a monumental deal.
29-year-old Bonucci has been heavily linked with a move to Stamford Bridge ever since Conte was confirmed as the new boss in west London and it seems Chelsea’s relentless pursuit has been beneficial, with Bonucci reportedly agreeing a £130k-a-week deal.
The powerful defender will significantly bolster Chelsea’s back-line for the new campaign and can be deemed as the replacement to John Terry, who recently signed a one-year extension but is likely to hang up his playing boots next summer.
Our landlord believes this is a huge move for Chelsea and backs Conte to complete further business, which should hand the fans in the bar even more excitement.
Where should Chelsea focus on next after sealing this deal? Let us know in the comments below!
