Bonucci reveals Man City wanted to sign him last year & how Declan Rice comment inspired Euro 2020 glory

The Juventus defender claims that Pep Guardiola was eager to bring him to Etihad Stadium in 2020, but he didn't want to leave his "home" in Turin

Leonardo Bonucci has revealed that Manchester City wanted to sign him last year, while also claiming that a "presumptuous" comment from Declan Rice inspired Italy to Euro 2020 glory.

Bonucci has spent his entire career to date in Italy, taking in spells with Viterbese, Inter, Genoa and Bari before joining Juventus in 2010.

The defender also played for AC Milan in 2017-18, but rejoined Juve at the end of a turbulent campaign at San Siro that saw him admit that he'd made a mistake in deciding to leave the Allianz Stadium.
