AC Milan's Leonardo Bonucci will work hard to 'shift balance' in Serie A

Gab Marcotti reacts to Milan's additions of Bonucci and Biglia, and the FC crew debate whether they can win the Scudetto.
Leonardo Bonucci received a huge welcome from fans as he completed his move to AC Milan.

Leonardo Bonucci insists he will work hard to "shift the balance'' in AC Milan's favour next season after completing a shock switch from Serie A champions Juventus.

The 30-year-old Italy defender, who had been linked with Chelsea and Manchester City, unexpectedly called time on his successful seven-year spell with Juve to move to San Siro last Friday.

Bonucci is thus far the standout capture in a summer of aggressive transfer activity by Milan, who are looking to land the Scudetto for the first time since 2011 by investing heavily in the first-team squad.

Ricardo Rodriguez, Lucas Biglia, Mateo Musacchio and Andre Silva are among the other expensive recruits but Rossoneri fans appear to be most excited about 70-time Italy international Bonucci.

And on Monday he promised to advance the Milan mission in 2017-18, writing on his official Instagram account: "Some supporters asked me if I'll be able to shift the balance... I will work to make it, fighting with more hunger than ever.''

The former Inter Milan player has also been handed the captain's armband for a campaign which will see the Rossoneri compete in the Europa League following a sixth-placed finish last term.

Now owned by Chinese businessman Li Yonghong, Milan are reportedly eyeing big-money deals for Torino hitman Andrea Belotti and Pierre-Emerick Aubameyang of Borussia Dortmund this month.
