Cristiano Ronaldo’s move to Juventus always looked likely to push Gonzalo Higuaín towards the exit door in Turin but few would have predicted the Argentine forward’s switch to AC Milan.
Juve’s decision to bring Leonardo Bonucci back to the club after one season in Milan will see Higuaín and young defender Mattia Caldara move in the opposite direction.
After undergoing medicals on Thursday, Milan have now confirmed the transfer.
“AC Milan announces the signing of the players Gonzalo Higuaín and Mattia Caldara from Juventus,” a club statement read.
