Man City in for Bonucci?

Guardiola wants Bonucci at City

Incoming Manchester City boss Pep Guardiola will look to acquire the services of Juventus centre-back Leonardo Bonucci in the summer.

The Italy international has been a key member in the Old Lady setup since his move from Bari in 2010.

According to The Mail, Guardiola will seek to have an overhaul of the City defence following their dismal showing during the current campaign.

It is added that the Spaniard wants to build his backline around Bonucci, whom he regards as one of his favourite players.

The arrival of Bonucci could well see the end of defensive pairing Eliaquim Mangala and Nicolas Otamendi, who have struggled to adapt to the English game.

City are currently nine points adrift of league leaders Leicester City after they drew blank at struggling Norwich City on Saturday.
