The defender has responded to rumours about his future amid reports his agent has been in London to discuss a move to Stamford Bridge

Leonardo Bonucci claims rumours surrounding his future are 'just speculation' after he was linked with a move to Chelsea.

Bonucci open to Chelsea talks

The Italy international rejected a transfer to Manchester City ahead of the 2016-17 campaign in favour of a prolonged stay in Turin, but recent reports have claimed he is now open to a new challenge.

Bonucci fell out with Juve head coach Massimiliano Allegri back in February and Chelsea are believed to be keeping a close eye on the centre-back's situation, with Antonio Conte keen to be reunited with his former player.

The 30-year-old has insisted he is not thinking about a move away from Juventus amid fresh reports that his agent has been in London to discuss a transfer to Stamford Bridge.

"Me leaving Juventus? That is just speculation," Bonucci told La Stampa.

He made 45 appearances in all competitions in 2016-17 as Juventus secured the domestic double before being soundly beaten in the Champions League final by Real Madrid.
