Manchester United to step up their bid for Chelsea and Manchester City target Leonardo Bonucci, according to latest reports.

It looks like Jose Mourinho’s summer spending isn’t set to stop anytime soon, despite the impending world-record capture of Paul Pogba.

According to The Sun, the new Old Trafford boss is in the market for a second centre-back, having already signed Eric Bailly from Villarreal last month.

And he believes Bonucci is one man who would definitely beef up his defensive options.

But the 29-year-old Italian won’t come cheap, with Juventus reportedly valuing him at a staggering £60m.

Bonucci made 36 top-flight appearances last season as the Turin giants secured a record-equaling fifth Serie A title.

And he also enjoyed an impressive Euro 2016, helping Italy reach the quarter-finals, where they suffered a cruel penalty shootout defeat to Germany.

Bonucci was believed to be using a holiday in Balearic Island of Formentera to consider a potential move, with Juventus leaving it up to the player about whether he fancied a move to the Premier League.

However, Italian daily Tuttosport claim Bonucci has now decided to stay in Turin and pledge his loyalty to the Old Lady.

The paper claims Bonucci is poised to sign a new and improved contract with the Serie A champions and will be handed a new deal worth €4.5million a year, plus bonuses.

The report further says that Bonucci, regarded as one of the world’s best central defenders, has ambitions to win the Champions League but feels he stands a far better chance at Juve than he would at any of Manchester City, Manchester United or Chelsea.
