Manchester United are keen on signing Leonardo Bonucci from AC Milan this summer, according to reports.

Yahoo! Sport is reporting that the Red Devils are keeping a close eye on the defender’s situation at the San Siro with a view to a possible move to bring him to Old Trafford this summer.

The same report says that AC Milan are facing the real possibility of being expelled from European competition after allegedly breaching financial fair play regulations.

The story claims that the 31-year-old Italy international has been identified as a transfer target by Jose Mourinho as the Red Devils boss looks to strengthen his options at the back ahead of next season.

Manchester United are thought to be on the lookout for defensive reinforcements this summer as Mourinho looks to assemble a squad capable of winning the Premier League title next season.

Bonucci joined AC Milan Juventus for €42m last July and his move is one of the transfers that has reportedly sparked financial fair play problems at the San Siro.

Meanwhile, Manchester United completed their second signing of the summer last week when they officially announced a deal to sign midfielder Fred from Shakhtar Donetsk.
