Barcelona, Manchester City Eyeing Leonardo Bonucci Transfer


Both Barcelona and Manchester City are reportedly keen on a January move for AC Milan defender Leonardo Bonucci, according to Calciomercato (h/t Lucas Sposito of Sport Witness).

Barcelona are preparing to lose Javier Mascherano in January, and with the injury to Samuel Umtiti it leaves a big need for central defense.

Bonucci’s struggles at AC Milan increase the likelihood that he could be on the move in 2018.

Bonucci was regarded as one of the best defenders in the world before his move to Milan, based on his play during his time with Juventas.

Milan’s tough week, questions about the club’s ownership by UEFA, speculation about Gianluigi Donnarumma’s future and Bonucci’s slow adjustment to the club, are all reasons that could lead to his transfer.

Bonucci’s skill and his leadership abilities would be a major boost to any club that is able to land him in a transfer.
