Leonardo Bonucci has arrived at AC Milan ahead of his shock move from Serie A rivals Juventus.
The 30-year-old is on the cusp of putting pen to paper on a reported five-year deal at San Siro, with the clubs said to have agreed a €40million move.

Bonucci has been part of European club football’s most fearsome three-man at Juve alongside Giorgio Chiellini and Andrea Barzagli.
However, last year had an argument with head coach Massimiliano Allegri during a 4-1 win over Palermo, while he was also forced to deny reports of a rift with Paulo Dybala in the Champions League final loss to Real Madrid.
And the Italy international has arrived at big-spending Milan, with Bonucci the marquee signing of the ambitious transfer dealings funded by Yonghong Li’s Rossoneri Sport Investment Lux group.
Bonucci’s agent, Alessandro Luci, had refused to confirm a deal was in place for the centre-back but Milan tweeted a video of Bonucci’s arrival at the club today.
Milan have already added seven new signings ahead of the new Serie A season, with Andrea Conti, Andre Silva, Hakan Calhanoglu, Mateo Musacchio, Ricardo Rodriguez, Franck Kessie and Fabio Borini all moving to the club as they aim to end Juve’s dominance in Italy.
