Juventus are ready to cash-in on world-class centre-half Leonardo Bonucci and will accept an offer of £50 million from Chelsea if Cesc Fabregas is included in the deal, according to The Sun.

The Blues have been in the market for new defenders since Antonio Conte arrived at Stamford Bridge and landed David Luiz on transfer deadline day.

However, with the Italian trainer set to switch to a three centre-half system in West London, the further recruitment of a new defender is believed to be at the top of the manager’s wishlist.

Conte knows Bonucci well from their mutual time in Turin and looks set to break the bank to land the Italy international.

Fabregas has not been an automatic first choice for the Premier League side this season and speculation continues to swirl around what role the Spaniard will play at Chelsea in 2016-17.

The report suggests that Juventus are in the market for a deep-lying playmaker and view the former Barcelona star as an ideal addition.

As such, it is reported that next summer Fabregas and Bonucci will swap clubs and the Premier League outfit will shell out an extra £50 million in the process.
