“To tell the truth, I had some opportunities, even Manchester City and Manchester United. From Manchester City I had a bid in 2016. Then I talked to the club, I talked with Juventus and decided that it was better to stay and continue the victories with Juventus, “Bonucci said.

“And this year I had the opportunity to go home again, to return to Juventus. When I received this offer, I did not pay more attention to the other bids and decided to go back. ”

When asked if he had received an offer from the “Red Devils” this summer, he replied, “Yes.”
