Leonardo Bonucci is reportedly on Real Madrid’s radar as they consider launching an impressive €30 million bid for the Juventus player. The Madrid based club are looking for potential replacements for Sergio Ramos who is reportedly keen on leaving Spain.

The 28-year-old Italian has 2 years remaining on his current deal and enjoyed an impressive campaign last season making 52 appearances in all competitions, helping his side reach the Champions League Final. Bonucci has established himself as a key member of the squad in recent years and was instrumental for Juventus in claiming their fourth successive Scudetto.

Having already won five major trophies at Turin, Bonucci has been a major player for club and country. A calm presence at the back, he is known for his passing and discipline. His ability to start attacks from the back coupled with his defensive positioning make him one of the best.

Madrid are known to get their man and are willing to spend €30 million to lure Bonucci to the Bernabeu. According to sources, Los Blancos are also willing to double the player’s salary making a reported €4m-a-year contract offer.
