Reports: Man Utd Want Italy International

Portuguese manager Jose Mourinho is believed to want to sign an Italy international for Manchester United, following a recent European ban being placed on the player's current club.

Reports: Man Utd Offered Huge Swap Deal For Pogba

On Wednesday, it was announced that Italian giants AC Milan are banned from competing in UEFA competitions for two years, following a breach of Financial Fair Play regulations and UEFA club licensing rules.

This ruling might help Mourinho in his pursuit of Italy and Milan defender Leonardo Bonucci, who the Red Devils' boss is believed to see as a potential transfer target ahead of the 2018/19 campaign.

According to Yahoo! Sport, Milan may need to sell the veteran defender in order to improve their current financial situation, and United's boss is well aware of this.

Mourinho is said to be determined to strengthen his side's defence, with many believing that the likes of Chris Smalling and Phil Jones are not good enough for the team.

Smalling, who was snubbed for England's 2018 FIFA World Cup squad, has also been linked with a move away from the club.

Bonucci made 51 appearances for Milan in the 2017/18 season, and has a lot of international experience, having played 80 times for Italy already.
