5 Possible Replacements for Leonardo Bonucci at Juventus


Juventus had a fantastic season last term as they won the domestic double. They won the Serie A title with a four-point gap between themselves and Roma as well as the Coppa Italia where they beat Lazio 2-0. They also went all the way to the UEFA Champions League final against Real Madrid, although they were comfortably beaten by Zinedine Zidane’s side.

The four goals they conceded in the final in Cardiff were more than they conceded in the other 12 games they played in the competition. This shows how strong they were defensively last season and one the biggest parts of this defence was Leonardo Bonucci.

The Italian centre-back was sold to their rivals, AC Milan, for 40million Euros earlier this summer. There is no doubt that he will be missed by the Turin-based side and here are five players who they can sign to replace the huge gap.

Juventus may choose to look for a youngster to replace Bonucci as they look to build a strong team for the future. One of the best young centre-backs in the world at the moment is Malang Sarr who currently plays for OGC Nice.

After signing his first professional contract in November 2016, the 18-year-old made a fantastic impression on Ligue 1 as he was a mainstay in the Nice side that finished 3rd in the table. While he may not be the finished article, he has the potential to become one of the best defenders in the world.
