Lenoardo Bonucci decided to leave AC Milan and come back to Juventus as he had been playing there before he joined Rossoneri – but he could have easily become a member of Manchester United squad.

The Italian centre-back spoke about his past choices as he claimed, according to Sports Mole: “Basically there have been some possibilities both with Manchester City and with Manchester United. With Manchester City when I received that offer (in 2016) I actually talked to the club, I talked to Juventus and we decided that it was good for me to stay and to keep on winning with Juventus.”

“This year when I was told there was a possibility to go back home, to come back to Juventus I just stopped listening to any other offers and I decided to come back here.”

“I feel at home. Here I really do my best, I just push myself to the maximum and that’s something at Milan I really didn’t manage, I didn’t succeed to achieve and that was probably because in my heart I had already made the decision that I wanted to go back home.
