Juventus fullback Leonardo Bonucci has confirmed rejecting an offer from Manchester City.
The 29-year-old defender was the subject of intense interest from City last summer.
“It was not a decision taken lightly,” he said.
“When you’re wanted by one of the most important coaches in the world and he shows so much respect and appreciation, it is hard to say no.
“My heart prevailed. I play in one of the most important teams in the world and one that is able to win in Italy and in Europe.”
Note, that the Italy international defender has made 22 appearances during this season.
