MILAN, April 11 (Reuters) - Unicredit said on Thursday it will close a bond buyback today at 1400 GMT, earlier than announced, as it has already received offers worth 3.2 billion euros ($4.19 billion).

Italy's biggest bank by assets launched the buy back on April 8 and said it aimed to purchase up to 3.5 billion euros of its senior bonds.

The move is meant to reduce debt coming due in the 2015-2017 period and improve the use of the liquidity.
