The move is set to be part of a deal that will take Argentina forward Gonzalo Higuain in the opposite direction from Juve to Milan

Italy defender Leonardo Bonucci has arrived in Turin to undergo a medical ahead of a return to Juventus from AC Milan, the Serie A champions said on Thursday (www.juventus.com).

The 31-year-old, capped 80 times by Italy, spent seven years at Juventus before joining Milan for one season.

The move is set to be part of a deal that will take Argentina forward Gonzalo Higuain in the opposite direction from Juve to Milan.

Higuain will also undergo a medical on Thursday, Milan said on Twitter.

Bonucci's return to Juve would 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.
