Juventus set to sell Bonucci to AC Milan for £35million

Juventus defender, Leonardo Bonucci, is set to complete a “shock” move to Serie A rivals, AC Milan.

Sky Sports’ Kaveh Solhekol confirmed that the transfer was close via his Twitter account on Thursday night.

He wrote: “Shock transfer of the summer. Juventus about to sell Bonucci – arguably best centre back in the world – to AC Milan for £35m.”

Juventus manager, Massimiliano Allegri, had insisted that the 30-year-old will not leave the club.

Bonucci fell out with Allegri in February and was dropped for a Champions League game away to Porto.

The two men had apparently settled their rift, with the manager backing the him to take over as captain, when Gianluigi Buffon retires next year.

Man Utd sack Jose Mourinho: Red Devils part way with manager after poor start to the season


Jose Mourinho has been sacked by Manchester United following their disappointing start to the season.

The Red Devils currently sit sixth in the Premier League table but have already lost five times in 17 matches, leaving them 19 points behind leaders Liverpool and 11 off fourth-placed Chelsea in the fight for Champions League places.

That follows a summer transfer window in which Mourinho routinely complained at a lack of signings, with the Portuguese unable to persuade the club’s hierarchy to sign a new centre-back.

Mourinho has continued to drop hints that he remains unhappy at that failure to spend big, and he now leaves after two-and-a-half years in charge at Old Trafford, with his final match in charge Sunday’s 3-1 defeat to arch-rivals Liverpool.

“Manchester United announces that manager Jose Mourinho has left the club with immediate effect,” a statement read.

“The club would like to thank Jose for his work during his time at Manchester United and to wish him success in the future.
“A new caretaker manager will be appointed until the end of the current season, while the club conducts a thorough recruitment process for a new, full-time manager.”

 Lukaku’s first touch is bad, he loses the ball a lot – Mourinho 

Manchester United manager, Jose Mourinho, has slated Romelu Lukaku’s first touch, following their 3-1 defeat to Liverpool on Sunday.

Mourinho, however, feels he had a good game, despite failing to register a single shot on target.

“I think he didn’t have a bad game at all.

“I think he fought his heart, he had good movement, he set up the goal.

“He was lively, he had good movement, he had good interactions.

“Sometimes his first touch is not the best and he loses lots of ball in the first touch, but today it did not happen.
