Juventus agree Higuain, Caldara swap deal with AC Milan

Chelsea have missed out on two of their key transfer targets after AC Milan and Juventus agreed the swap deal involving Leonardo Bonucci, Gonzalo Higuain and Mattia Caldara.
The two clubs are now going over the finer details with one-time Chelsea target Higuain understood to be leaving on an initial loan.
The striker looks set to make the switch to the San Siro after his representative held positive talks with Milan sporting director Leonardo earlier this week.
It is understood Milan will have to pay a hefty £15million loan fee for Higuain but will have the option to make the move permanent at the end of the season.
It will come as a bitter blow for Chelsea boss Maurizio Sarri, who was keen to reunite with the Argentinian at Stamford Bridge this season.
The pill has been made even harder to swallow for Chelsea with another of their prime targets this summer, Caldara, included in the deal to bring Bonucci back to Juventus.
Sarri is now assessing other options as Chelsea officials work hard to push the Daniele Rugani deal over the line.
The Chelsea boss wants to play with ball-playing centre backs next season and sees Rugani as a player capable of fitting into the system and implementing his tactics.
However, the two clubs are yet to agree on a fee and are still negotiating, though it is believed the defender is keen to move to the Premier League should a deal be struck.
