Juventus star Bonucci moves to AC Milan

David Luiz

AC Milan announced an agreement to sign Leonardo Bonucci from Juventus on Friday in one of the more unexpected transfers in recent Serie A history.

The 30-year-old, who has won 70 caps for Italy, arrived at Milan headquarters and the seven-time European champions released videos and images of the player meeting the city club CEO Marco Fassone.

But Di Canio believes that Juventus were forced to take the decision following the much-publicised falling-out between the defender and coach Massimiliano Allegri. There are also reports about him being unhappy with arguments with the coach and some players during the Champions League final loss to Real Madrid in June in Cardiff. The 19-year-old midfielder would not be a regular starter of the bianconeri but he is a long time target of Juve DS Fabio Paratici who has personally contacted the player's agent. "In any case, Bonucci is a big reinforcement for Milan".

The San Siro giants are still trying to rediscover the form that saw them dominate Italian football for many years and they only managed a sixth-place finish last season to qualify for the Europa League.

AC Milan's new Chinese owners have been splashing the cash in the transfer market this summer and will soon break the €200m mark for money spent.

Bonucci penned a latter of gratitude for Juventus after the move.

"Seven seasons have gone by".

Bonucci won six successive Serie A titles with Juve, but left for a transfer fee that Italian sports daily Gazzetta dello Sport estimated at 40 million euros ($45.8 million). "The great regret of not winning the Champions League, however, is the pride of success and for being part of a large family", he added.

"I truly always gave everything until the end".
