Leonardo Bonucci is one of the finest center backs in the world, and he isn’t leaving Italy any time soon.

Bonucci, 29, has been linked with moves to Manchester City and Chelsea, but on Monday committed his future to Juventus until the end of the 2020-21 season.

He’s won six scudetti with Juve, making 291 appearances for The Old Lady in his career. Bonucci has four goals in 67 caps for Italy.

Bonucci’s young son Matteo has battled illness, and that’s triggered plenty of talk that the back would rather give his son stability despite interest in playing for Pep Guardiola at City or Antonio Conte (again) at Chelsea.
