Ladies and gentlemen, without further ado, I present a curated selection of tweets regarding Leonardo Bonucci.
Any mountains out there we could move to get Bonucci?— Dávid Pásztor (@D_Peezy) June 13, 2016
Bonucci again. What a game he’s having— James Horncastle (@JamesHorncastle) June 13, 2016
Bonucci with one of best individual performances you will see at Euro 2016. And it's only the first round of group games. Immaculate. #ITA— David Cartlidge (@davidjaca) June 13, 2016
Chiellini calls himself 'the aggressive one', calls Bonucci our 'defensive regista' and Barzagli 'our professor'— Juvefc.com (@juvefcdotcom) June 13, 2016
Bonucci is the absolute bollocks. We have to buy him. A ball playing centre half who can defend phenomenally well? Must. Buy. Him. Now.— J. Tweedie (@JoeTweedie) June 13, 2016
I repeat, any mountains we can move to get Bonucci?— Dávid Pásztor (@D_Peezy) June 13, 2016
But make no mistake, they would have to be mountains. Big. Large. Humongous mountains. Probably immovable mountains.
@SamiKhedira Thanks my friend! We are going to try the same next season!— Leonardo Bonucci (@bonucci_leo19) June 13, 2016
Buy Khedira, too, then, I guess?
Bonucci and Conte have worked together at either club or country level for the last five years. There's clearly massive respect and a great working relationship between the two of them, and that has led to a few passing rumors involving Chelsea.
Bonucci has spoken very highly of the new Chelsea head coach many times, but he's also spoken just as many, if not more times of not going anywhere from Juventus. He has recently signed a new contract extension until 2020, and while that alone will not stop idle speculation (which has recently linked the 29-year-old to Manchester United as well), nor will his previously rumored bargain basement £25m price tag, Bonucci staying at Juventus is probably one of the safer bets you can make this summer.
