What to expect from Juventus and Milan in 2018-19?


"A statement from Milan read", AC Milan announces that it has acquired from Juventus FC the right to the sports performances of the players Gonzalo Higuain and Mattia Caldara.

Higuain is expected to join the San Siro outfit on loan, while Caldara is included in the deal to take Leonardo Bonucci back to Juventus. This is now his third Serie A club.

Included in the transfer is also a straight swap of Caldara and Bonucci. Miguel Almiron, a 24-year-old midfielder from Atlanta United, told ESPN this week that he believes he's ready to play in Europe. He first joined Napoli after having left Real Madrid.

The Italy worldwide won't take time to slot right back in, however, with Gianluigi Buffon's departure to Paris Saint-Germain, it remains to be seen if Massimiliano Allegri's defence remains as watertight as before.

The Italian worldwide made 319 appearances during seven years at Juventus, but will likely slot straight in at the back to add to that number. Patience will be needed as they develop together, but it's an exciting plan long-term, nonetheless.

The 24-year-old had two non-official appearances with the Old Lady who have chose to swap him for Leonardo Bonucci. To not only have the vision of the club's best interests but to execute it and stick to their guns, the Rossoneri really do merit vast credit for this move.

Asked about Chelsea's intention to sign new defenders, he said: "It is good to have fantastic players, more than just 11".

Critics, however, say he has failed to make an impact on the big occasion. However, despite being cast aside by the Scudetto holders, the Argentine forward is not short of options with both Milan and Chelsea eagerly vying for his signature.
