Surprising: Bonucci to Milan tonight


La Stampa reports that Milan’s deal for Juventus defender Leonardo Bonucci could be closed tonight.

Reports began to emerge yesterday that the centre-back could make the switch to San Siro, and the deal has progressed rapidly today.

It’s believed the Italian international has already agreed a €6m contract, while the Rossoneri are not far from meeting the €40m asking price.

Now La Stampa – which is owned by the Agnelli family – is reporting that the deal could be closed tonight, as the Diavolo want to take Bonucci to China with them.


Contrary to previous reports, the newspaper says Mattia De Sciglio will be involved in the deal though this could be the gentleman’s agreement previously mooted.

Bonucci returned to training with the Old Lady today, but it appears it may be his final session as a Juventus player.
