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.
