AC Milan Agree Deal For Gonzalo Higuain

David Luiz Heaps Praise on 'Fantastic' Youngster

Juventus have brought back former defender Leonardo Bonucci a single season after they sold him to historical rivals AC Milan for €42 million (£37 million).

On the other hand, Higuain moves to Milan in a loan deal worth £16m.

The Blues are running out of time to sign the Argentine striker as AC Milan is in a pole position to steal Higuain away from Juventus.


Bonucci has sealed his return to Turin in a €35m (£31.2m) switch, acting as a swap deal with Caldara, and signed a five-year contract with the reigning Serie A champions.

Argentina striker Higuain, 30, was an Italian record transfer to Turin in July 2016 when Juve paid Napoli 90 million euros (£77million) for his services.

It increasingly looks like there is trouble in Gonzalo Higuain's paradise ever since the arrival of Cristiano Ronaldo at Juventus.

The player's denials of an issue with his then-former boss now appear honest after their reunion was sealed, with the highly-rated Caldara - who only officially linked up with the Bianconeri earlier this month after a switch from Atalanta - taking Bonucci's place at San Siro.

Bonucci made a shock switch to Milan a year ago, as the Rossoneri sought to bring in a raft of signings to once again emerge as the biggest Italian club. With Juventus scoring 86 goals and AC Milan having just 56 goals for in Serie A, the San Siro could use a top goal scorer.

As for Higuain, Milan now have a forward who has double-figure scoring tallies for the past decade, while scoring 20 or more goals in eight of those campaigns.

But he is now reportedly unsettled at Milan following the club's failure to finish in the Champions League places and wants to return to Juventus.
