Bonucci, who joined Milan from the Old Lady for a fee of €40M over the summer as per the BBC, has established himself as one of the greatest centre-backs on the planet these last few years, and for good reason.

The defender won everything there was to win with Juventus apart from the Champions League, with the player managing to make a total of 319 appearances for the Serie A table toppers during his time with the club.

His fantastic ability on the ball and leadership qualities has seen some fans label the 30-year-old as one of the most complete defenders in the planet, and they’re not wrong!

If Bonucci does end up snubbing Madrid for a move to Barcelona, only time will tell just how he is received by Los Blancos fans.
