Bari management concede top trio Andrea Ranocchia, Leonardo Bonucci and Andrea Masiello could all leave in the summer.

All three young defenders have been linked with bigger clubs this season.

"It'll be very hard for us to keep all three of them here," noted Bari sporting director Giorgio Perinetti.

"Ranocchia doesn't belong to us, Bonucci is in part-ownership with Genoa, while Masiello is ours. We'll have to see."
