Last summer, Leonardo Bonucci quarreled with Allegri and chose the easiest option for developing relations with the allenatore. The defender asked the agent to find a new club and fled from Turin at the first class opportunity. In the pool of potential buyers of the Italian were "PSG", "Chelsea" and "Manchester City", but because of the desire of the family to stay in Italy, Leo pointed to the dubious project of "Milan", which then greatly regretted.
"It was not easy to take a step back, but Milan quickly convinced me of the project and enthusiasm," - Bonucci shared six months after the transfer. The situation of Bonucci could not be called a norm. In Milan, the stopper was promised a captain's armband, an opportunity to play in European competition, a fight for Scudetto. As a result, the Italian national team football became only the object of the jokes of the fans "Juve" and fell through the full program.
The same "City" and "Chelsea" offered the Italian defender titles. But the vague prospects of "Milan" embarrassed him and threw him many miles away from the trophies. Leonardo in a short time turned from a fighter into a whiner. In December, the image of the murderer disappeared, as the champion ambitions of "Milan", and instead of a confident and tough man appeared doubting the whole guy. For the first time, information about Leo's disappointment in the project of Chinese businessmen was held in December. In a couple of months the journalists wrote about the football player's decision to leave Milan. In early June, Gattuso made contradictory comments: "I talked with Leo. You have to be honest and talk about everything as it really is. I think even if the player wants to leave, the coach must do everything to convince him to stay."
Bonucci returns to Juventus, but Signora will not pay a cent for him. Milan and Turin agreed on Leo's exchange for Mattia Caldara. Last summer, "bianconeri" earned a transfer of Bonucci 42 million euros. This summer, they returned Leo much cheaper (according to Transfermarkt, the cost of Caldara is 25 million euros).
According to the poll of La Gazzetta dello Sport, about 89% of the fans of Juventus are against the return of Bonucci. They are sure that the defender betrayed them and exchanged the house for a huge contract. This raises a very important question: how comfortable will Bonucci be in the conditions of the general hate. A season ago, fans loved Leo infinitely, but Allegri was distrustful of him. Now the situation has changed a lot: Max's attitude to him is still not very clear, but fans are now unlikely to accept him with special love.
To Bonucci was quieter, "Juventus" offered the Italian decent conditions: a contract for 4 years with a salary of 5.5 million euros per season. Not bad for a 31-year-old player. In any case, for the victory in the Champions League, "Juventus" needs not only goals Cristiano, but also reliable guys near the gate of Wojciech Szczęsny. With Bonucci, the defense of Juve will be even more impregnable.
