United are in the market for defenders this summer and Bonucci had become the latest name linked with Old Trafford. It certainly seemed plausible given the apparent difficulty the Manchester club is having in their efforts to prise Toby Alderweireld away from Tottenham.
"There is no problem whatsoever [at Milan]. I hope these rumours will be put to bed so we can build something important," he told Sky Sports Italia.
"We're aiming to return to the Champions League and to compete for big objectives."
His arrival was a huge statement from the seven-time European champions as part of a big summer of ambitious spending, but the team ultimately struggled in Serie A and could only achieve a sixth place finish in the end.
Yet with coach Gennaro Gattuso at the helm for his first full season after a strong first few months in charge, there is a renewed optimism around Milan ahead of 2018/19.
The club hasn't played Champions League football since the 2013/14 campaign.

Bonucci will not be going to the World Cup this summer after Italy's shock failure to qualify and so should be well rested and fully prepared for the new season come August.
