AC Milan are open to selling Manchester United target Leonardo Bonucci this summer, according to a report in Italy.

Italian media outlet Sport Mediaset, as quoted by ilBianconero.com, is reporting that AC Milan are looking to offload the 31-year-old this summer.

The same article states that Manchester United are interested in a potential deal to sign the experienced Italian centre-half to bolster their defensive options ahead of the new season.

According to the same story, AC Milan want to sell Bonucci to fund a move to sign Chelsea FC striker Alvaro Morata following his disappointing debut season in the Premier League.

Manchester United have been linked with a host of different centre-halves in the summer transfer window as Mourinho looks to improve his back.

Tottenham Hotspur star Toby Alderweireld was thought to be the favourite to move to Old Trafford this summer but the Premier League duo are some way apart in their valuation of the Belgium international.

Manchester United were rumoured to be entertaining the idea of a £50m bid to sign Leicester City’s World Cup star Harry Maguire.

The Red Devils have signed Shakhtar Donetsk midfielder Fred and FC Porto full-back Diogo Dalot in the summer transfer window so far.
