Report: Jose Mourinho makes contact with Leonardo Bonucci

Leonardo Bonucci is reportedly a summer transfer target for Manchester United boss Jose Mourinho, who has already made contact with the AC Milan defender.

Manchester United manager Jose Mourinho has reportedly contacted AC Milan defender Leonardo Bonucci regarding a summer switch to Old Trafford.

The Red Devils boss is understood to be in the market for a new centre-back to bolster his squad ahead of a likely Premier League title challenge next season.

Italian outlet Tuttosport suggests that Bonucci has emerged as a target for Mourinho, who has already discussed a transfer with the experienced defender.

Bonucci was only signed by Milan from Juventus last summer, joining in a £37.5m deal, but economic struggles will force the Rossoneri to sell a couple of players in the coming weeks.

According to the same report, Milan do not intend to listen to any bids below £35m, although an initial loan offer with an obligation to buy could be an option.
