Milan have made significant progress and could be on their way to signing Leonardo Bonucci, in the most shocking transfers of this summer window.

At first it seemed like a made-up rumour, then like a concrete idea and now Bonucci to Milan appears to be a very possible transfer that could be closed very soon.

The Rossoneri have been in contact with Bonucci’s agent Alessandro Lucci for a while and today, Fassone approached Marotta to officially kick off negotiations.

Milan’s offer is believed to be €30 million plus Mattia De Sciglio, while the Bianconeri want €40m and prefer to not include De Sciglio in the deal, and instead talk to Milan about the fullback at a later date. Fassone and Mirabelli would like to conclude the transfer before they leave for China with the rest of the squad tomorrow, so new contacts and maybe a new offer could be happening tonight.

Milannews.it meanwhile suggests that Bonucci and Milan have agreed personal terms and that there is a total understanding between the player and the club. If an agreement is reached with Juve, Bonucci would sign a five-year deal worth €6m per season – the same salary earned by Donnarumma.

Mediaset claims that that the player is already looking for a new home in Milano. There are currently no other offers (in Italy or abroad) for the 30-year-old Bonucci, who after seven years in Bianconeri, and six consecutive Scudetti, seems to be looking for a new challenge in his career.

The name of Alessio Romagnoli has never been mentioned and he will surely not be included in the deal. There is a “gentleman’s agreement” between the clubs, however, that De Sciglio would join Juventus (reportedly for €10m) if Bonucci, who grew up in Inter’s Youth Sector, joins Milan.

‘Leo’ is widely considered one of the best center backs in the world and his arrival would give Montella even more options and flexibility, as a three-man defense could become a real possibility.

I am having a phobia that I might wake up and read the news and it is still Berlusconi Galliani running the club.
The headlines read “Torres back at Milan for a loan deal” or “Milan to sell Locatelli, Calabria, Donnarumma, and Romagnoli to Finance the transfer of Ibrahimovic” or “Galliani: Mr. X in August!”

CB can generally play/last longer as they don’t cover as much ground as a mid or forward.
But with his quality I’ll still take a 35 year old Bonucci over John stones or vigil van dyke

All I can think about at the moment is the Bonucci deal. It’s unbelievable but it looks like it’s really happening and maybe even as soon as tonight or tomorrow. If this goes through, it changes so many things on so many fronts, but I just say this for the moment : If it really goes through, then Fassone and Mirabelli deserve an Oscar for this mercato as I also see Biglia and another big name striker arriving too. There is no Romagnoli in the deal and we might also be able to pass De Siglio for close to 15m… Read more »

Sure, if Bonucci signs, then common sense will dictate to play 3-5-2. While I believe the main aim was to use 4-3-3 and keep 3-5-2 in mind as an alternative, this opportunity to sign Bonucci changes priorities.

But it will also changes so many other things. I’ll say my piece when it’s official.

I assumed Gigio was promised the Captain Armband?

Perhaps that clause was removed since he rejected that contract and we managed to remove it in the new deal as I can see that Bonucci has also been promised the Captain band as well.

Believe me … This is the passing of the torch …. 6 years back as champions of Italy, we gave Pirlo to Juve and they started their renaissance …. This time, it is us who will do so with this signing …. With Bonucci, our defence is totally sorted … I guess 3-4-3 / 3-5-2, it is for next season

Unbelievable. He’s 30 but still has 4/5 years at the top left. Look at Pepe and Barzagli recently! I’ve a feeling we’ll get Aubameyang too, he’s perfect for our strike-force with his speed. We’ll have an incredbile squad if this all comes off

4-3-3
Donnarumma (Gabriel)
Conti – (Abate/Calabria) – Bonucci (Musacchio) – Romagnoli (Gomes) – Rodriguez (Antonelli/Calabria)
Kessie (Locatelli/Sosa) – Biglia (Mauri/Montolivo) – Hakan (Bona)
Suso (Borini) – Andre Silva (Cutrone) – Aubameyang (Bona as LW)

“I only want milan because i wanna win ucl at least once in my career and theres no better place to realize it than milan. I also wanna learn from the very best, zapata” – bonucci

If bonucci comes then he’ll arguably be milan’s 2nd best signing of this mercato because the best signing is most definitely fassobelli duo. What a fantastic job theyve done so far

lol, do you really believe that?. Learn about how much money clubs earn from jersey sales. You will be surprised by the low amounts. At least 90-95% goes to the brand(Nike,Adidas), than you have manufacture etc. Clubs gets almost zilch.

Are we playing with 3 center backs?
If we are not, why should either or Romagnioli and/or Musacchio should give up their starting spot?
Bonucci is one of the best. But that does not mean Romagnioli and Musacchio does not deserve starting spot, and it would not be wise to lose Romagnioli.

But 40 mil? For arguably the best CB in the world? So what if he’s 30. He has At least 3 good years in him. I don’t know how our budget really looks like,but if we can squeeze him in, then definitely: Sign him!

Biglia looks to be official bonucci next. Bonucci is going to be the deal of the season if we land him, he is the best cb in the world. He just turned 30 where defenders get into their prime. He’s got 4 top notch years ahead of him. Not only that we get a born leader and I’m sure players like donnarumma Conti Abate romagnoli will be ten times better with him, and to take him from a direct rival would be the icing on top of the cake. I thought we would be a top 4 competitor, I am… Read more »

Can anyone point me to a 35 year old defender who is still at the top of his game? I know you are all excited about Bonucci’s capture but my point is that most defender’s start going downhill after 33.
That’s why I question the wisdom of tying him to a lucrative deal until he is 35.

i’m already thinking about our Milan since the take over process succesfully finalized for the investors a.k.a Yong Hong LI and co, they will take shortest route to bring Milan back to glory.so they will spend, spend, and spend. at the end, they want Milan back to the league titles contention and back to UCL at the first shot so this mercato seems logical for me. with bonucci, our back line will be stronger for at least 3-4 years ahead and he will be a good teacher for romagnoli.but i think in 4 man back line, musachio must play. bonnie… Read more »

However I’m pretty worried about the financial fair play in the future. With Biglia and Auba we’ll be spending about 200 M this season (not including Kessie’s future payment). There might be some issues with team bonding due to too many change in sqad members.
