Bonucci admits he rejected bigger offers from abroad

Bonucci admits he rejected bigger offers from abroad

AC Milan defender Leonardo Bonucci admits he rejected bigger offers from abroad.

Bonucci shocked football earlier this summer when choosing to defect from Juventus to the Rossonero.

Speaking with Gazzetta dello Sport, the Italy international stated: “Because they had the most ambitious project, I live for challenges, and (Marco) Fassone and (Massimo) Mirabelli made me feel important and they wanted me very much, otherwise negotiations would not have lasted only 48 hours.

“It is certainly not a question of money: to those who call me a mercenary I say that I had also offers from abroad, where I would have earned more.”
