Milan Sign Higuain & Caldara; Bonucci Heads for Juventus

AC Milan have confirmed the signings of Juventus pair Gonzalo Higuain and Mattia Caldara as they bid farewell to Bianconeri-bound defender Leonardo Bonucci.

The two Italian giants have spent the best part of this week discussing a sensational triple transfer, which sees two Juve players heading off to San Siro.

And the deal has now been finalised, with Higuain gearing up to star at his third Serie A club on an initial loan move, including a fee estimated at €18 million (£16m/$21m).

Caldara, meanwhile, spent just one month at Juventus following his move from Atalanta, but the defender leaves now as a makeweight in the deal to bring back Old Lady favourite Bonucci.

The two centre-backs, Milan confirmed, switch teams in a straight swap, with no further money changing hands between the clubs.

Both Higuain and Caldara underwent medicals in Milan on Thursday prior to the announcement, with the club publicising the pair's arrival in the city.

And the Rossoneri's announcement was swiftly followed by confirmation from Juventus that prodigal son Bonucci had come back just one year after leaving the club for San Siro.
