PSG begin Bonucci approach

Paris Saint-Germain contacted Juventus defender Leonardo Bonucci to see if he was prepared for a transfer, it’s reported.

According to SportMediaset and La Gazzetta dello Sport, PSG approached the centre-back’s entourage to ask about his availability.

Bonucci left Juventus last year to join Milan, only to return after one disappointing season at San Siro.

His status in Turin is under threat after Maurizio Sarri took charge, especially with Matthijs de Ligt coming in from Ajax for €70m.

Sarri is famously an admirer of Daniele Rugani, having worked with him at Empoli, so with Giorgio Chiellini as the captain, Bonucci would no longer be guaranteed a starting spot.
