Man United preparing huge bid to beat Chelsea to experienced defender

BonucciManchester United fans can be regularly found in the Transfer Tavern smoking area discussing their side and it’s no different today, with the latest transfer reports being top of the agenda.

The main talking point of the day concerns an experienced defender, with Gazzetta Dello Sport stating Manchester United are lining-up a huge bid to land Juventus defender Leonardo Bonucci ahead of their Premier League rivals.

28-year-old Bonucci, in the prime years of what has already been a successful career, is widely-regarded as one of the best centre-backs in world football and his signature would not come cheap.

With Chelsea looking set to be led by Antonio Conte next season, the former Juventus boss wants a reunion with Bonucci at Stamford Bridge- but United are ready to make their move to ensure that such a scenario does not occur.

A problem for both sides, however, could be the likely lack of Champions League football and Bonucci would have to give up his involvement in that competition to move to the Premier League- which our landlord doesn’t feel he will be happy to do.

United fans, would Bonucci fix your problems in defence? Let us know in the comments below!
