Walker's arrival will be expensive consolation for Guardiola after missing out on veteran Brazilian defender Dani Alves, who snubbed his former Barcelona boss to join PSG on a free transfer following his departure from Juventus.

He rejoined the club in 2014 after a couple of seasons with Manchester United. Juve's Bonucci in shock Milan move Italy international defender Leonardo Bonucci joined AC Milan in a shock move from Italian champions Juventus, the San Siro side announced on Friday. The buying club confirmed in a statement that they had "reached an agreement with Juventus", and that the centre-back would sign a five-year contract "subject to medical completion". Bonucci won six successive Serie A titles with Juve, but left for a transfer fee that Italian sports daily Gazzetta dello Sport estimated at 40 million euros ($45.8 million). The 30-year-old will reportedly earn 10 million euros a season, which would make him the highest paid player in Serie A. The centre-back was shown arriving at Milan's headquarters in a video on the club's Twitter feed.
Portuguese forward Andre Silva has joined from Porto, with Turkey midfielder Hakan Calhanoglu moving from Bayer Leverkusen and Swiss full-back Ricardo Rodriguez arriving from Wolfsburg. Italian striker Fabio Borini, Mateo Musacchio, Andrea Conti and Franck Kessie have also been brought in ahead of the 2017-18 season, while Lazio's Argentine captain Lucas Biglio is rumoured to be close to joining Milan as well. Domestic media were in no doubt as to what Bonucci's arrival at Milan meant for the upcoming Serie A title battle. "Claps of thunder" in the title race suggested Gazetta dello Sport, while Corriere della Sera believes "Milan can win the Scudetto with Bonucci". Japan's Honda joins Mexican side Pachuca Japan international Keisuke Honda has signed for Mexico's Pachuca, the former AC Milan player announced on social media Friday, ending months of speculation about his future. The 31-year-old left the Serie A side at the end of last season after a frustrating three-year spell in Italy. A video post on Honda's official Instagram page showed him signing on the dotted line for the CONCACAF champions along with the caption: "Signed new contract at CF Pachuca in Mexico!" Honda, instantly recognisable with his bleach-blond surfer's haircut, shot to fame after helping Japan reach the last 16 of the 2010 World Cup in South Africa before they were knocked out by Paraguay on penalties.@bonuccileo19 at #CasaMilan ??

Japan's talismanic playmaker continued to attract attention at CSKA Moscow after joining the Russians from Dutch side VVV-Venlo in late 2009 but failed to establish himself following his move to Milan. Honda, who describes himself on his Instagram page as "soccer player, entrepreneur and educator", was recently linked with Turkey's Galatasaray and several MSL sides, including LA Galaxy. Watford sign Chalobah from Chelsea England Under-21 international Nathaniel Chalobah has signed for Premier League side Watford from champions Chelsea for an undisclosed fee, the buying club announced. The 22-year-old impressed as England reached the semi-finals of the recent European Under-21 Championship and has signed a five-year contract with the Hornets. Chalobah spent the 2012/13 campaign on loan at Watford and had been expected to agree a new £60,000 (68,000 euros, $78,000) a week deal with Chelsea, but the lure of more first-team football proved decisive.
