Pep Guardiola 'eager to bring Leonardo Bonucci to Manchester City'

Manchester City boss Pep Guardiola wants his club to sign Juventus defender Leonardo Bonucci, according to a report.

Manchester City boss Pep Guardiola is reportedly keen for his club to sanction a summer move for Juventus defender Leonardo Bonucci.

The Premier League champions are expected to be in the market for at least one new centre-back ahead of the 2020-21 campaign.

Indeed, John Stones and Nicolas Otamendi have both struggled for form this season, while Aymeric Laporte's long-term knee injury led to Fernandinho filling in at the back.

According to Calciomercato, Guardiola has identified Bonucci as the ideal player to boost his defence, although Juve are allegedly not open to a sale.

The 32-year-old left the Old Lady for AC Milan in the summer of 2017 before returning to Turin one year later.

The Italy international, who has a contract with the Italian champions until the summer of 2024, has contributed four goals in 34 appearances for Maurizio Sarri's side this term.
