Man City make new attempt for Juventus defender Bonucci

Manchester City are making a new move for Juventus defender Leonardo Bonucci.

Bonucci turns 33 next week and only signed a new contract in November, holding him to the Turin giants until June 2024.

However, he remains a target for City boss Pep Guardiola, who has long said Bonucci is his ideal centre-back.

The Italy international has been in Turin since 2010 and is expected to take over the captain's armband once Giorgio Chiellini and Gianluigi Buffon retire.

While aware of City's interest, Bonucci remains committed to the Bianconeri, reports Goal.
