Valencia’s Garay interest Juve

Juventus are considering a bid for Valencia defender Ezequiel Garay and reportedly view him as a potential replacement for Leonardo Bonucci.

According to Plaza Deportiva, the Argentine defender – signed by Los Che for just over €20m last summer – is on the radar of the Italian champions, who are keen to strengthen.

Bonucci departed the Bianconeri in a shock €40m move to rivals Milan earlier this month and Coach Max Allegri is reportedly insistent they sign a replacement defender.

However, the report acknowledges any deal ‘will not be easy’ as new Valencia Coach Marcelino Garcia Toral values the former Benfica and Zenit defender highly, seeing him as part of his plans.

In addition, the Spanish giants are already seeking to offload defenders Ruben Vezo and Aymen Abdennour this summer.
