The French outfit AS Monaco is interested in upgrading their defensive backline with the introduction of Leonardo Bonucci as he has impressed the club with his performances in this season.
As.Monaco maintain the pressure on the current champions PSG by staying in 3rd place with 5 points being the difference between both clubs and they already know that one of their main areas that needs strengthening is their defensive line back.
Leonardo Bonucci made his move to Juventus in 2010 and has now become a crucial player for the Italian giants. As he turned into one of the biggest assets for the club it seems unlikely that Juventus will even consider allowing the 26 years old defender in moving away to another league and club.
The 25 years old Serbian midfielder of Benfica is also on the radar of AS Monaco but also Chelsea and Manchester United – with the latest sports betting making United the favourites to land him.
Although however with a release clause of €45 million there are only a limited number of clubs that are willing to spend that amount of money for the player that Chelsea used to lure David Luiz into the Premier League back in 2011 and now they want him back.
Chelsea’s main targets for the winter transfer window is James Rodriguez, Joao Moutinho and Radamel Falcao which means that the budget will be spent in trying to sign those players allowing As.Monaco the chance to make an offer that Manchester United just won’t match.
After the opening 7 matches of the French league Ligue 1, As.Monaco was located at the top but have slowly been dropping points and even needed a goal from Falcao in order to rescue 1 point against the club in the bottom spots of the league Evian which is becoming more evident on why they are scorching the transfer market as they want to keep the momentum and pressure going against PSG and Lille.
