Spanish giants Real Madrid have been eyeing and considering a move for AC Milan captain Leonardo Bonucci. According to Talk Sport, Madrid is lining up a bid for the Italian defender.
Bonucci joined Milan in the summer from Italian champions Juventus for a deal worth around £35 million but has still yet to perform like his former self. Manchester City and Chelsea were interested in the center back during the summer, but no reports claim that they will place a bid in January. Real Madrid will try to go for Bonucci and are confident that they would be able to persuade him to join the club.
On the Milan point of view, they shouldn’t agree with this deal for many reasons. First of all, even if Bonucci hasn’t been performing like he used to at Juventus, it doesn’t change the fact that Milan would still have problems in the defense. Bonucci has been one of their top signings and still has something to give to the team. Milan can really use his skills and leadership. Even if he isn’t playing very well, he is still helping the defense and if he leaves the back line would be in even more chaos.
For Real Madrid, I would go for this signing. Real have not really been performing, and a boost in their defense could help them improve their form. Bonucci alongside Sergio Ramos in the middle of the defensive line is a duo that can stop many attacks and can even score goals themselves. Real Madrid only has 2 center backs that can really compete in the Champions League and in La Liga, Bonucci can give Zidane more defending options and a new first-team player.
In conclusion, Bonucci would help both Real Madrid and AC Milan, and both teams will do what is best for them. Will Bonucci go to the Los Blancos or stay at the Rossoneri?
