Boost for Man United as Serie A manager doesn’t rule out selling veteran defender

Leonardo Bonucci

AC Milan manager Gennaro Gattuso has provided a bit of a boost to Manchester United as he has claimed that target Leonardo Bonucci could still leave the side in the summer.

United want to take advantage of the financial problems that are plaguing the Serie A giants and have been linked with a move for the former Juventus defender.

Gattuso was quoted by the Express as saying:

“We have to respect the choices of the players. Obviously he wants to win but we also want to win. We will wait and see because he is an important player that we want to keep at all costs.”

The Italian defender only joined Milan from Juventus at the start of last season but their failure to reach the Champions League seems to have hit them hard.

The club were also removed from the Europa League for the upcoming season before the Court of Arbitration of Sport reversed the decision on Friday.

We have brought in three players in the summer with Lee Grant being the latest one but we could do with another quality signing or two.

Bonucci might not be the youngest player in the world but he is someone with immense experience and that would be great for the current United team.

It would be a bit of a risk signing him, given his age, but if we can get a couple of good years from him, we just might end up with a bargain since Milan are in financial troubles.
