Juventus officially announced the signing of their former defender Leonardo Bonucci in a swap deal which saw Mattia Caldara and Gonzalo Higuain moving to the opposite side.

Argentina striker Gonzalo Higuain has left the Italian champions on a €18m loan deal with a €36m option to buy.

Former Rossoneri captain Bonucci moves back to the Allianz Stadium after only one season at Serie A rivals AC Milan.

“Juventus Football Club S.p.A announces that these agreements have been finalised with AC Milan S.p.A,” the Old Lady’s official statement begins.

“Temporary transfer of the registration rights of the player Gonzalo Higuain for a consideration of €18m, to be paid in the 2018-19 financial year.”

“The agreement also provides AC Milan with the option, to be exercised at the end of the 2018-19 financial year for the definitive acquisition of the player at a price of €36m to be paid in two financial years.”

“Definitive acquisition of the player Leonardo Bonucci for a consideration €35m, payable in two financial years. Juventus and the player have signed a five-year contract of employment until June 30 2023.”

“Definitive disposal of the registration rights of the player Mattia Caldara for a consideration €35m, payable in two financial years. The economic effect is positive for around €22m.”

The Italy centre-back had a previous seven-year spell at Juventus before joining the San Siro side last summer.

And the 31-year-old has won 12 trophies including 6 Serie A titles with the Old Lady.
