Chelsea urged to complete £60m signing of Leonardo Bonucci

Alyssa BaileyOct 07, 2016

An American news channel made the embarrassing mistake of reporting that former U.S. team coach Bob Bradley had agreed to manage Chelsea, who of course only signed Italian Antonio Conte at the start of the season. Manager Antonio Conte will reportedly be handed the funds to lure the Italy global to Stamford Bridge in order to rebuild a creaking defence that has already conceded 13 goals in nine games this season.

Chelsea owner Roman Abramovic has told manager Antonio Conte that a January move for Juventus defender Leonardo Bonucci could be on the cards.

It's especially easy to criticize this sort of move after Chelsea splashed 30 million pounds to sign David Luiz on Deadline Day.

Conte managed Bonucci for three years at Juventus and also worked closely with him while he was in charge of Italy.

Daily Express: Sunderland fear they will have to pay £10m to sign former Inter Milan midfielder Ricardo Alvarez if a Court of Arbitration ruling goes in the Italian club's favour. The duo enjoyed a close relationship at club and worldwide level, and earlier this year Bonucci said: "Conte will be a big success in England, Chelsea are already a very good team and he will have them challenging both in England and in Europe".

"You see how much money other teams spend - everyone wants to win the league - and I know from the past how hard it is to win the Premier League".

'Chelsea is a team which had a great time a few years ago and they're looking for great success.

Chelsea finished in eighth place in the Premier League table last season.

Prior to Conte's arrival at Chelsea, Bonucci was forced to deny that he meant to follow the coach to the Premier League.

"If I am one of the best today, part of that is down to him".
