Manchester United are keen on a move to sign Leonardo Bonucci from AC Milan this summer, according to reports in Italy.

Italian outlet Gazzetta dello Sport, as quoted by the Sun, is reporting that Manchester United boss Jose Mourinho could look to entice Bonucci to Old Trafford this summer as he looks to bolster his defence ahead of next season.

According to the same report, Bonucci is on his way out of AC Milan after Uefa expelled the Italian club from European competition for next season after breaching Financial Fair Play rules.

The same report says that Milan will appeal the one-year ban, but they are still expecting a number of players to quit the club this summer, and Bonucci could be on his way out of the Turin outfit.

Manchester United are believed to be on the lookout for a number of new signings this summer as they look to try and build a team capable of challenging for the Premier League title next season.

The Red Devils ended up in second place in the Premier League table and without a trophy last season in Mourinho’s second campaign in charge at the Old Trafford outfit.
