Italy star wants out at AC Milan?
Manchester United have been handed a boost in their attempts to sign Leonardo Bonucci after the Italian international defender reportedly requested to leave AC Milan.
Manchester City and Chelsea are also thought to be interested, who is leaning towards a move to the Premier League after Milan’s expulsion from European football, according to the Daily Express.
Jose Mourinho has been a long-term admirer of the former Juventus man, and is targeting an experienced centre-back for the new campaign after failing to be impressed with his current crop last season.
Tottenham’s Toby Alderweireld remains a target for the Old Trafford boss, but a lack of progress and a prohibitive price tag have made that deal difficult.
New Chelsea boss Maurizio Sarri is hoping that the Italian connection will help him persuade Bonucci to choose Stamford Bridge, but a lack of Champions League football could see him switch to United.
He’s 31 – but very interesting..
