Gonzalo Higuain joins AC Milan from Juventus

Gonzalo Higuain and Leonardo Bonucci have swapped clubs in two of Italy’s biggest transfers this summer.

Italy defender Bonucci, 31, has re-joined Serie A champions Juventus from AC Milan for £35.1m.

And Argentina striker Higuain, 30, is moving in the opposite way in the wake of Cristiano Ronaldo’s stellar transfer from Real Madrid.

Milan will pay an initial £16m as part of a season-long loan deal for Higuain, with the view to a permanent £32m deal. Juve defender Mattia Caldara has also moved to Milan as part of the deal.
