Bari chief Perinetti confirms Man City contact for Bonucci

Bari have confirmed Manchester City's interest in defender Leonardo Bonucci.

The Serie A club's sporting director Giorgio Perinetti expects City boss Roberto Mancini to renew his interest in the 22-year-old after failing with a bid in the January transfer window.

"It is true that Mancini followed him more than anyone, especially in the winter, but then we heard no more news," said Perinetti. "We wait for them to return since the coach was interested in the boy.

"The situation is not so simple with Genoa but we have an excellent relationship with them."
