Italy defender Bonucci nears move from Juventus to AC Milan

Italy global defender Leonardo Bonucci took out a page in a local newspaper on Saturday to thank Juventus fans for their support after agreeing a shock move to rivals AC Milan.

AC Milan manager Vincenzo Montella has described coaching Leonardo Bonucci as "a dream come true" ahead of his official unveiling.

Bonucci's arrival in Milan comes after heavy investment from the seven-time Europeans champions following the sale of the club by former Italian Prime Minister Silvio Berlusconi to a Chinese consortium in April.

"He is a player with global experience", Montella told reporters at a press conference on Milan's Asian tour. "Captain? In my mind I have more captains, I will talk with the club about this matter".

When Bonucci arrived at Milan's offices Friday to sign the expected deal, his auto was surrounded by Rossoneri fans.

Bonucci has won six successive Serie A titles with Juve.

"I don't believe in club symbols, as they are all professionals".

"I don't feel the pressure. I am happy for Bonucci, it was a surprising transfer, but he is a great player and I'm sure he'll improve our game". It's true, we have changed a lot choosing players with a logic, but in the end, we need to be relaxed and we need to soon create a solid group which last season made us achieve positive results. These are favourites to win [the league]. "Our objective has to be getting into the Champions League and that is a very exciting challenge, especially with all the new signings".
