AC Milan set to sign Chelsea and Manchester City transfer target Leonardo Bonucci

Reported Chelsea and Manchester City transfer target Leonardo Bonucci is said to be closing in on a shock move from Juventus to rivals AC Milan.

The centre-back has been heavily linked with a move to Stamford Bridge with Antonio Conte a massive fan of his former player.

Pep Guardiola's desire to team up with one of his "favourite players ever", Juventus stalwart Leonardo Bonucci, didn't pan out a year ago when Manchester City tried to sign the Italian defender.

Milan had initially been in contact with Bonucci's agent Alessandro Lucci, who also represents Milan's Andrea Bertolacci, to assess the possibility of a switch from Juventus Stadium to the San Siro.

Juventus are ready to let the defender walk this summer after Bonucci informed them in January he wanted to leave the club.

After seven years in Turin and widely spread speculations that he might join any of the Premier League giants lined up behind him, the 30-year-old dubbed one of the best defenders in the world is likely to become another high-profile investment from AC Milan's new Chinese owners.

Bonucci wants to join Milan rather than move overseas as he targets staying in Serie A.

According to La Gazzetta dello Sport, Milan want the deal to be wrapped up by Friday, in order to bring the player to China for their pre-season tour.

It has been a insane summer for Milan as they have splashed the cash and added Hakan Calhanoglu, Andre Silva, Franck Kessie, Ricardo Rodriguez and Andrea Conti to their ranks.
