Leonardo Bonucci has rejected the latest offer from Manchester City to remain at the Turin club. Bonucci was subject of a £37million bid from the Manchester club just a few weeks previously, and now it seems the Italian defender is set to stay in Italy as well as sign a new long-term contract with his parent club Juventus.

Contracted until 2019, Bonucci looks set to be offered an improved deal by the club despite interest from Pep Guardiola. City proposed an €8million annual salary should Bonucci opt to swap Turin for Manchester but he has remained loyal to Max Allegri and Juventus who are going in pursuit of the Champions League.

The 29-year-old has been targeted by Manchester City, and the Premier League side have offered Juventus €60m for the Italian international which was rejected by Juventus. The Italian giants are reluctant to lose two-star players as Paul Pogba looks set to join near neighbours, Manchester United.

City still want to sign a central defender this summer and hope to conclude a move for Everton defender John Stones.
