Man United Keeping Tabs on International No.19 Ahead of Summer Move

Chelsea, Manchester United and Man City are all expressing interest in Leonardo Bonucci ahead of the summer transfer window, according to reports.

Bonucci helped Juventus keep an impressive clean sheet at Barcelona on Wednesday as the Italians progressed to the semi-finals of the Champions League.

The 29-year-old has been one of the most consistent defenders in Europe over the past few years, attracting interest from a host of Premier League clubs.

The Daily Telegraph say Manchester rivals United and City, along with top-flight leaders Chelsea, harbour interest in Bonucci but may have to pay a world record fee for a defender to land a deal.

Serie A giants Juventus hope to keep hold of the Italy international but have been made aware that Bonucci has emerged as Pep Guardiola’s priority defensive target this summer.

Chelsea, who are four points clear at the top of the league, are also eyeing defensive reinforcements but may give up on Bonucci if they bring Virgil van Dijk to Stamford Bridge.

Jose Mourinho’s United are expected to enjoy a productive summer transfer window and the Portuguese boss would not oppose a move for Bonucci, who has made over 300 appearances for Juventus since signing from Bari in 2010.
