Leonardo Bonucci has been keeping fit amid reports linking the Juventus defender with a move to the Premier League this summer.

The Italy international was one of the outstanding defenders in this summer’s European championship as the centre-half helped the Azzurri reach the last eight o f the competition in France.

Bonucci has been heavily linked with a move to Pep Guardiola’s Manchester City side in recent weeks as the new Citizens manager looks to improve his defensive options.

The four-time Serie A winner has also been touted as a Chelsea target with his former national team manager Antonio Conte now in charge of the west London side.

Whoever manages to sign Bonucci or should Juventus keep hold of their prized asset, the 29-year-old should be in good physical shape after the defender went on a run during his summer break.

Bonucci posted the above photo on his Instagram page and wrote the following caption:

“Work hard and sweat also today!!! 😂😂😂 Goodnight everybody!!! #LB19 #running”

The Italian defender has scored 16 times in 274 appearances in all competitions for the Serie A champions.

Bonucci has won the Italian top-flight on five occasions since his move from Bari in 2011.
