    Leonardo Bonucci (born 1 May 1987) is an Italian footballer who plays as a defender for Serie A club Bari. He is a centre back, but can also play on both wings.

    Club career


    Internazionale

    Bonucci started his career at Viterbese but loaned to Internazionale in summer 2005.

    Bonucci made his Serie A debut in the last match of 2005–06 season, against Cagliari Calcio. At the end of season Inter bought Bonucci outright.

    He played his first Coppa Italia match against Messina, 9 November, 2006, substitute Fabio Grosso in 86min. He played 2 more Coppa Italia for Inter that season, substituted Walter Samuel at half-time against Empoli quarter-final return leg and as starter against Sampdoria, semi-final return leg.

    In January 2007, half of the registration rights was sold to Treviso, along with Primavera Team team-mate Daniel Maa Boumsong, but remained at Inter until June 30. While the latter already spent first half of the season on loan at Treviso. They would met another Inter partially owned player Alex Cordaz. At the last season with Inter's U-20 Youth Team, he won the champion.

    Treviso & Pisa

    On 1 July 2007, along with Maa Boumsong they officially became Treviso player. To compensate Treviso that sold Robert Acquafresca back to Inter in June, Inter sold Federico Piovaccari in co-ownership deal, made there were 3 players joined Treviso from Inter that season. At Treviso, Bonucci played 20 starts in 27 Serie B appearances as one of the regular starter.

    In June 2008, Bonucci was the only player that bought back by Inter from Treviso but he was remained at Treviso on loan. To compensate Treviso (for Bonucci and mid-season signing Riccardo Bocalon and Jacopo Fortunato) and to give a chance to youth players, Treviso hired Gianluca Litteri and Daniele Pedrelli in co-ownership deal.

    Bonucci played 13 Serie B matches for Treviso before left for another Serie B struggler Pisa Calcio on loan.

    Bari

    On June 8, 2009, Bonucci underwent a medical examination at Genoa. On July 1, Inter officially announced Bonucci, along with Robert Acquafresca, Francesco Bolzoni and Riccardo Meggiorini, transferred to Genoa, as part of the deal that sent Thiago Motta and Diego Milito to Inter. Moreover, Ivan Fatić who co-owned between Chievo and Inter, became co-owned between Chievo and Genoa.

    But on 2 July he was transferred to Bari from Genoa, on a co-ownership deal, along with Meggiorini (co-ownership deal), Matteo Paro (co-ownership deal), Andrea Ranocchia (loan) and Giuseppe Greco (loan).

    At Bari he has become first choice in central defence under head coach Giampiero Ventura, showing a composed yet strong and effective defensive style. He has formed an extremely strong partnership with Andrea Ranocchia which has been so effective that, as of the midway point in the 2009–10 season, Bari have the second best defensive record in Serie A. The strong partnership ended after Ranocchia injured in mid-season and ruled out from rest of the fixture.

    International career

    Bonucci never received call-up from Italy youths team but his team-mate Andrea Ranocchia, 1 day "team-mate" Domenico Criscito, Salvatore Bocchetti and former Inter team-mate Marco Andreolli did. But after impressive season at Bari, he received his first call-up from Italy senior team in February 2010 for a friendly match against Cameroon. Half of Marcello Lippi's experimental squad were in-experienced players and 3 of them (include Bonucci) received their first call-up, partilly due to injuries of the regular starter. He was included in the starting line-up along with national team regular Fabio Cannavaro, Giorgio Chiellini to form the defense line in the 343 formation.

    Pirlo has no equal in Europe, Vidal is a champion. And Marchisio, though little noticed, when he is one hundred per cent [he too] is a champion.

    Yeah, but I was gonna wait for the official news, even though it's done. Just so I could add transfer details below. No worries.

    Excellent.

    I think it's required to post a youtube video, even if it's not a compilation.

    NO, it must stay, until such time as his hand lifts a Scudetto for Juventus.
