Milan & Juventus Agree Leonardo Bonucci Deal
Juventus’ Bonucci to become a Milan player today!
Milan have agreed a deal to sign Juventus’ star Leonardo Bonucci, managing to complete the deal of the summer and steal arguably one of the world’s best defenders. The Italy international is about to sign a 4-year contract with the Rossoneri worth €6.5 million per season, per Sky Italia.
After almost an entire day of holding continuous talks, the Rossoneri and Juve have managed to meet halfway regarding the transfer of Bonucci. However, should the Bianconeri decide to go for De Scligio, they will have to be prepared to meet Milan’s asking price which is set at €15 million.
Despite the reports, it is believed that Bonucci is currently staying in Turin awaiting for his agent Alessandro Lucci’s call to come to Milan for his medical tests with the Milanese side, SportItalia claim. He is expected to arrive first thing in the morning, but it is yet to be seen whether he would be able to join his new team in China for the China Tour.
The former Inter defender has not always seen eye to eye with the former Milan and current Juventus manager, Massimiliano Allegri, and the pair traded insults during a game against Palermo last season, with the defender subsequently being dropped against Porto in the Champions League.
