Several centre-back's have been linked with United in recent months but Bonucci has emerged as a potential target and it looks like Mourinho has stepped-up his interest in the Milan star.
Tuttosport reports that Mourinho has identified Bonucci as a target to solve his defensive issues and has made contact with the 31-year-old about joining Old Trafford.
Milan missed out on the Champions League this term, despite spending over £210m on new signings last summer.
As far as Bonucci is concerned, should a transfer materialise, it could happen sooner rather than later as Italy won't be involved in the World Cup.
He was heavily linked with a move to Chelsea and Manchester City last summer, but ultimately made a decision to remain in his home country, moving to big spending AC Milan.
However, there are suggestions that the centre-back could consider leaving the Italian peninsula this time around, especially after AC Milan failed to qualify for the Champions League.
