Leonardo Bonucci pushing for Juventus return

Rome: AC Milan's new sporting director Leonardo revealed on Thursday that team captain Leonardo Bonucci wants to return to Juventus just one season after signing for the club from the Serie A champions. Of course, nothing came of it, but it was enough to rebuild the relationship between the two - and laid the ground work for a possible move now.

Bonucci's potential departure shows that the troubled times are not yet over for AC Milan despite being readmitted to next season's Europa League last week, thanks to the Court of Arbitration for Sport overturning a season-long ban for violating UEFA's financial fair play rules.

Chelsea, Manchester United and PSG have been interested in signing him, but according to Italian outlet Calciomercato.it, the defender has set his sights on a return to Juventus a year after leaving the club.

Bonucci, 31, only joined Rossoneri from the Old Lady a year ago in a €42m (R660m) transfer that was meant to spark the renaissance of the fallen Italian giants. While it's €3m shy of what the club paid for the player last summer, they would also be saving themselves €14m per year in wages. He must talk to the managers, but as long as he wears the Milan shirt, I want to see the Bonucci of these first 12 days.
