Man City boss Guardiola ready to try again for Juventus defender Bonucci

Manchester City boss Pep Guardiola is ready to try again for Juventus defender Leonardo Bonucci.

City have been left short at centre-back this season following the departure of Vincent Kompany and the long-term injury suffered by Aymeric Laporte last August.

And 32-year-old Bonucci could be the solution to solving what has become a problem position for Guardiola, who has seemingly lost faith in Nicolas Otamendi and John Stones.

Guardiola has long been an admirer of Bonucci, and said back in 2017: "He's an exceptional player in terms of character, personality - in terms of everything."

Calciomercato.com says, however, Juventus are determined not to let the talismanic defender go.
