Italy international defender, Leonardo Bonucci, has bid Juventus fans farewell via a local newspaper on Saturday, thanking them for their support after agreeing a shock move to rivals AC Milan.
30- year-old Bonucci 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.
