Juventus said on Tuesday they would no longer be involved with the transfer of Juventus star Leonardo Bonucci and he has accused them of not being open to a new deal.
The Nerazzurri’s decision follows a string of transfer rumours in recent days, and Bonucci’s agent, Roberto Bologna, said his client had told him he would not sign a new contract with Juventus until after the end of the Serie A season.
“I have not seen a clear statement from Juventus regarding the transfer,” Bonucci told reporters.
“I’ve spoken to Bonucci, but I don’t have anything concrete to say.”
“I know that they have a great deal of respect for my decision and I respect that,” he added.
“But they also want me to leave, so I’m ready to say goodbye.
I have been very clear with my agent that I am not interested in a new transfer until the end the season.”
The 22-year-old’s contract expires in the summer, and he is expected to leave the Bianconeri this summer for a new club.
Bologna said he had no immediate plans to discuss Bonucci with the Juventus hierarchy, but that he would have a “good relationship” with the Biancocelesti, a club that he represented in the Premier League for eight years before leaving in 2013.
“There is a great respect between the two clubs, that’s for sure,” he said.
“We had a good relationship.
We’ll have a good dialogue, and I don`t think there’s anything in particular that I can say about the transfer, beyond the fact that I have a right to say this.””
The situation is complicated and there is an enormous amount of information, so we’ll see where it goes from there.”
