Benitez pushing Real Madrid to bid for Juventus defender Bonucci

New Real Madrid coach Rafa Benitez has included Juventus defender Leonardo Bonucci on his shopping wish-list.

Benitez has submitted his shopping list to Real president Florentino Perez, which is understood to be extensive.

Among the names is Bonucci, who was part of Juve's back four in Saturday's Champions League final defeat to Barcelona.

Tuttosport says Real are ready to bid for the Italy international - and Juve could be willing to sell.

Indeed, it's understood Juve already have wind of Benitez's interest and are making plans to bid for Bayern Munich defender Mehdi Benatia to replace Bonucci.
