Manchester United are reported to be weighing up an offer for AC Milan’s Leonardo Bonucci this summer. The Italy international only joined the Rossoneri from Juventus last year but his future has come into question after the club failed to meet the Financial Fair Play requirements.
According to The Express, the San Siro outfit still have to recoup around £45m before the transfer deadline to avoid further sanctions and this would witness them part ways with Bonucci.
It is added that United manager Jose Mourinho is keen to take advantage of Milan’s cash-trapped situation and an offer of around £30m could be sufficient to lure the Italian from the Serie A club.
Bonucci has undoubtedly been one of the stalwarts of the Italian game but his move to Old Trafford could bring different outcomes, considering he has relatively no experience outside of the Serie A.
Meanwhile, the Italian’s age (31) makes him a short-term prospect for the club and the money may rather be well spent on a younger recruit in the form of Harry Maguire, who has impressed at the World Cup.
United are said to have planned a £50m offer for the England international amid his excellent showing at the summer World Cup but it remains to be seen whether Leicester City consider the transfer offer.
