Gonzalo Higuain agrees to join AC Milan on loan from Juventus

Thursday, 02 Aug, 2018

After a nightmarish 2017/18 season at Chelsea, veteran centre-back David Luiz is ready to turn the corner with the Blues under new boss Maurizio Sarri and the Brazilian has stated that he's loving the Italian tactician's philosophy.

An agreement between the two clubs is in place and AC Milan and Juventus, along with the individual players' agents, are finalising the details of the deal at the moment.

"I love this philosophy", he said of Sarri.

It's believed that Milan will pay an initial £16m (R275m) for the loan with the option to make the move permanently for £32m (R550m) at the end of the season.

"I want to salute AC Milan fans but also the Juventus' fans because they have always supported me". "When I took my decision to come back here from Paris it was to win the Premier League and to do something again with Chelsea, so I am very happy here".

"Leonardo [Bonucci]? Let's see tomorrow I need to do medical tests and sign my contract".

"I have played with many players, different age, different times of life, so it is great to a player like him here".

Caldara, who spent a single month with Juve having moved from Atalanta at the start of the transfer window, is the makeweight in a deal to bring back the Italy defender.

Meanwhile, the Blues are looking to provide Michy Batshuayi a fresh chance to resurrect his career.

Moreover, the Argentina worldwide has requested a rise on his current wage with Juventus - which stands at £7.5m-per-year - and is justifying his stance with the fact that Milan will not be featuring in the Champions League this season.
