Leonardo Bonucci has completed his medical at Juventus to seal a return to the club just 12 months after leaving.

Bonucci has already been pictured in Juventus training gear, while Higuain has been spotted in Milan attire ahead of his initial loan move.  

In a short statement on their website, Juventus confirmed that the defender arrived in Turin from Milan’s tour of the States on Thursday morning, before heading to the medical centre. 

He completed his tests in the afternoon, with the deal virtually complete.

Bonucci’s return to Juve  will reunite him with Andrea Barzagli and Giorgio Chiellini, who together formed the so-called ‘BBC’ defence, which proved to be one of Europe’s most formidable rearguards.

Barzagli, 37, extended his contract for another season in June.

Bonucci left Turin for the San Siro last July, but will be back in black and white this season
