Man United to sign world-class defender, £60m price tag

Manchester United are set to continue their lavish summer spending by moving for Juventus centre-half Leonardo Bonucci this summer, according to The Sun.

The Red Devils have been busy in the transfer window over recent months and are rumoured to be closing in on a world-record deal to bring French midfielder Paul Pogba back to Old Trafford.

However, the spending may well not stop there, with new manager Jose Mourinho telling the Red Devils hierarchy that he needs another top-drawer centre-half if the club are to fight for the Premier League title this season.

Bonucci has been an integral part of the Juve team that has dominated Italian football for the last five years and is regarded as one of the finest central defenders in the world game.

The report suggests that the Italy international has a £60 million price tag on his head but that United could consider spending big to bring another Juventus star to the English game.
