Bonucci is expected to sign with AC Milan after a 40 million transfer from Juventus, The Guardian reports.

Reports emerged on Wednesday night that the 30-year-old was considering leaving Turin, and in turn Milan had made initial contacts with his agent over a possible move.

Alessandro Lucci told SportItalia that he is working with the Serie A champions "on a sale".

Should an agreement be struck, it would rival Gonzalo Higuain's shock switch to Juve from Napoli last summer in terms of its unexpected nature. I'll offer my own thoughts in detail at some've been warned. The 30-year-old has been heavily linked with a move to Chelsea, Manchester City and Real Madrid with Antonio Conte, Pep Guardiola and Zinedine Zidane all believed to be long-term admirers of the Italian worldwide.

The health of his son Matteo, who required surgery last summer, is believed to have contributed to his decision not to leave Italy, but it was not an ideal 2016-17 season for him despite winning his sixth straight Serie A title. Bonucci and Allegri were apparently involved in another heated argument.

But even if we allow for the possibility that Juventus suddenly designated Bonucci non-essential personnel, why wouldn't have they sold to the Premier League instead, from where they could've gotten a fair bit larger transfer fee?

Having discussed the situation with Bonucci's agent, it's added in the report that Milan will now look to take their offer to Juventus for the Italian global to try and get a deal done.
