PSG Looking To Complete Another Massive Summer Signing

Paris Saint-Germain are looking to follow up the signing of Gianluigi Buffon on a free by drafting in his former Juventus colleague Leonardo Bonucci.

Buffon, now 40 years of age but showing no signs of slowing down, has signed a one-year contract upon his lucrative move to the French capital after leaving Juventus.

There is also the option to extend that deal for another 12 months, which would take him beyond his 42nd birthday.

He became new manager Thomas Tuchel's first signing at the club, but the German also wants to strengthen the spine of his side further with another Italian rock in the form of Bonucci.

Only a year ago, Bonucci made the surprise decision to leave Serie A top dogs Juventus for AC Milan, where he was immediately installed as captain.

But reports say that he could well leave after one season and the Rossoneri are prepared to let him do so due to their financial issues.

PSG would appear to be at the very front of the queue for his signature, with there being talk that his agent has already met with representatives from the Ligue One club and discussed a potential move.

Though PSG would still likely have to stump up a fair bit of cash for his services, it makes perfect sense given he's one of the very best in the world.

Thiago Silva, Marquinhos and Presnel Kimpembe are decent central defensive options at present but they'd be boosted significantly if Bonucci did make the move.
