ROME:

Italy in­ter­na­tional de­fender Leonardo Bonucci took out a page in a lo­cal news­pa­per yes­ter­day to thank Ju­ven­tus fans for their sup­port af­ter agree­ing a shock move to ri­vals AC Mi­lan. Bonucci, 30, is join­ing Mi­lan on a five-year deal af­ter seven sea­sons in Turin, where he won six suc­ces­sive Serie A ti­tles with Ju­ven­tus and played in two Cham­pi­ons League fi­nals. “Seven sea­sons have gone by. Seven sea­sons of vic­to­ries, of dreams achieved, of ma­tu­rity gained thanks to this ex­cep­tional bond with Juve,” Bonucci wrote in the Gazzetta dello Sport daily. “I truly al­ways gave ev­ery­thing un­til the end. I have re­ceived, given and learned. And what I see to­day, look­ing back, is a splen­did story wor­thy of end­ing in full re­spect and af­fec­tion, with­out ques­tion­ing any­thing I went through with the club, the cap­tain, my col­leagues and the fans,” he added. Bonucci’s ar­rival in Mi­lan comes af­ter heavy in­vest­ment from the seven-time Euro­peans cham­pi­ons fol­low­ing the sale of the club by for­mer Ital­ian Prime Min­is­ter Sil­vio Ber­lus­coni to a Chi­nese con­sor­tium in April. —AFP
