AC Milan have confirmed the capture of Leonardo Bonucci, from rival Serie A club, Juventus.
The Italian defender joined for a fee of €42 million and has signed a five-year contract with Juventus.
It took a while for the transfer of Bonucci to be done, but now Montella can strengthen his defence with his addition.
Speaking to Milan’s official website, manager Montella said: “He is a player with international experience. Technically, I think that he and Sergio Ramos are the strongest central defenders in the world.
“Coaching him is a dream come true.”
