An intriguing moves in the transfer market set to occur for AC Milan and Juventus as they reportedly set for agreeing moves involving three players.
Argentinian striker, Gonzalo Higuain is heading to Milanello, accompanied by young defender, Mattia Caldara, while Leonardo Bonucci will be making his return to Turin.
The deal reportedly is almost done with some details regarding Higuain’s contract left, while the other two players switch have been agreed couple of days back as Caldara and Bonucci’s deal is practically a swap.
The Argentinian striker himself has been touted to leave Juve this summer following their success in acquiring Cristiano Ronaldo, which forced the Turin giant to let go some of their players for financial sacrifices.
Higuain was courted by both Milan and Chelsea, but the latter doesn’t seem to be hesitant in making a move before they can offload one of their current strikers as well.
Milan themselves were open to sign the former Real Madrid and Napoli star as they’ve been eyeing for top notch forward since last summer and didn’t want to miss out on the opportunity.
This deal apparently happened due to Juventus’ wish on acquiring Bonucci back from Milan, something that the defender is also keen on doing, seeing how the Turin giant are poised to challenge for Champions League this season.
However, Rossoneri didn’t want to let their captain leave without getting a direct replacement, which eventually triggered Caldara’s swap deal.
Juve themselves were reluctant in selling the young defender they loaned to Atalanta in the last two season, but they eventually agree to it upon knowing Milan’s interest on Higuain.
Bianconeri urged Rossoneri to also sign Higuain in a rumored 20 million Euro loan fee with another 30 plus million option to buy agreement starting from next summer.
Being able to get a fee for the Argentinian, clearing out his wage bill while acquiring a senior top defender who can help them to win it now in Bonucci, pretty much paved the way for them in parting ways in an interesting prospect such as Caldara.
