- Italy defender leaving Juventus after seven years in Turin
- Bonucci and manager Max Allegri fell out during last season
The Juventus defender Leonardo Bonucci has agreed to join Serie A rivals Milan. The Italian international, who has been with the Turin club for seven years, is signing a five-year deal with the Milanese club and is hopeful of concluding the deal before the weekend.
Bonucci, regarded as one of the best defenders in the world, has not always seen eye to eye with the Juventus manager, Max Allegri, and the pair traded insults during a game against Palermo last season, with the defender subsequently being dropped against Porto. The defender was travelling to Milan for his medical on Friday morning.
