|Assunto:||has bought vs. bought|
Or "He has recently bought a new car."
Don't forget the point of the perfect aspect in the example given is to make an announcement of a new, but unknown, event.
It is standard dynamic tense use in English to move from 'perfect aspect' announcement to 'past-verb' placement in time.
The question is not whether you can make the change, but why you would want to rid a 'news broadcast' of its dynamic quality.
Although, I suppose, the lack of this dynamic perfect aspect verb feature in Romancs languages may account for why its subtle purpose in English is difficult to appreciate.
