Juventus centre-back Leonardo Bonucci is set to leave the club after 11 years in Turin, with reports linking him to a move to Union Berlin. The Bianconeri veteran had been informed by Juve management that he was no longer a part of their plans for the new season, leaving him free to find a new club.
Reports had suggested that the defender would push for his reinstatement to the squad, with some newspapers suggesting he may even sue Juventus for damages regarding his treatment this summer.
Sky Sport Italia and a host of others now report that Bonucci is just a step away from joining Bundesliga side Union Berlin, with just the final details to be resolved.
The former Juve captain won 8 Serie A titles with the Bianconeri, as well as 4 Coppa Italia and 5 SuperCoppa Italiana trophies.
