Andrea Barzagli bids farewell to Leonardo Bonucci, denies bust-up
From ESPN - July 17, 2017

Juventus defender Andrea Barzagli has said goodbye to AC Milan-bound Leonardo Bonucci, denying that there had been any bust-up between the pair at the Champions League final.

Bonucci is set to join Milan for 40 million, leaving Turin after seven seasons which have included six straight Serie A titles and the past three Coppa Italias, as well as two Champions League finals.

"We have spent some fantastic years together, full of victories and achievements," Barzagli wrote on Instagram. "We have improved and supported each other and found a great feeling together with Gigi [Buffon] and Giorgio [Chiellini] which I had never felt before.

"It's going to be strange not to see you in the dressing room, that same dressing room which some people have been saying is now divided, inventing and making things up about arguments and confrontations. But we know the truth. Good look for your new adventure, Leo."

Rumours of a bust-up involving Bonucci and Barzagli at half-time in June's Champions League final have been on the increase, even if Bonucci tried to dismiss them a month ago, saying that "nothing happened" in the dressing room.
