Concerned Mourinho pushes Man Utd to bid for Bonucci

Manchester United are stepping up their push for Juventus defender Leonardo Bonucci.

The Sunday Times says Jose Mourinho has set his sights on Bonucci in a bid to ease his fears over Manchester United’s defence.

The Old Trafford boss will not stop his summer spending with the expected world-record capture of Paul Pogba.

He has Juventus’ central defender Bonucci firmly in his crosshairs.

Such a move for the £60million-rated Italy international, 29, would mean a lot of negotiating – something Mourinho may not be excited about given the drawn-out nature of Pogba’s apparent capture.

Other options include Argentina star Ezequiel Garay, the 29-year-old who currently plays for Zenit St Petersburg.
