AC Milan encourage Man Utd boss Mourinho to firm up Bonucci interest

Manchester United are being encouraged in their pursuit of AC Milan captain Leonardo Bonucci.

The Sun says United and Bayern Munich are leading the chase for Bonucci, who will need to leave AC Milan this summer.

After missing out on qualification for the Champions League, the Rossoneri are in a position where they have to let some of their biggest assets leave in order to comply with FFP regulations.

Having spent around £200million last summer, finishing in the top four became the absolute minimum requirement, but Milan will only be playing Europa League football next season.

Jose Mourinho has contacted the Italy international, but United will face competition from Bayern — with Milan willing to agree to a loan deal with an obligation to buy for around £35m.
