During the summer, Antonio Conte and Chelsea were strongly linked with Juventus star defender Leonardo Bonucci. Reports even claimed that Chelsea had a bid of £60 million rejected for the Italian.
However, Bonucci’s latest statement suggests he was actually preparing for a move to England. The 29-year-old has revealed that he isn’t leaving Juventus, but he also admitted that he was learning English language last season, as Chelsea were strongly interested.
“I had offers,” Bonucci admitted to Premium Sport.
“If I had wanted to leave, I would have made it happen. I was already studying English.”
