Leonardo Bonucci has officially completed his move from Juventus to AC Milan, the San Siro outfit has confirmed on its official website.
Milan confirmed that they had reached an agreement to sign Bonucci from the Old Lady on Friday, subject to a medical examination.
And now, the 30-year-old defender has officially joined the Rossoneri on a five-year contract, for a transfer fee believed to be in the range of €42 million. Moreover, the Italian giants have reportedly made the centre-back Serie A’s best-paid player.
Milan’s official statement read: “AC Milan are delighted to announce the signing of Leonardo Bonucci from Juventus FC. The player has penned a five-year contract through to 30 June 2022.”
Club boss Vincenzo Montella talked about his star signing by stating: “He is a player with international experience. Technically, I think that he and Sergio Ramos are the strongest central defenders in the world. Coaching him is a dream come true.”
Bonucci joins the likes of Hakan Calhanoglu, Mateo Musacchio, Franck Kessie, Ricardo Rodriguez, Andre Silva, Fabio Borini, Andrea Conti and Lucas Biglia, in this brand new and promising Milan squad, which will now look to end Juventus’ dominance in Italy.
