AC Milan have confirmed that they have officially lodged a bid to sign Gianluca Zambrotta from FC Barcelona. Although the transfer is unlikely to take pace this month since Barca President Joan Laporta has affirmed that the Italian would remain at the Camp Nou until the end of the season at least, Milan are confident that they can recruit the player in the summer.
Sky Sports quotes Milan’s chief officer Adriano Galliani saying:
Last week at the Uefa meeting I officially told Barcelona officials of Milan’s interest in Zambrotta. Barca president Joan Laporta told me we will speak again in a couple of months but from now until June he’ll remain at Barcelona.
Milan appear to have already started revamping their squad for next season. Milan owner Silvio Berlusconi said earlier this month that he would pour millions into the club in the summer to make it larger and more competitive and it appears that the Italian World Cup winning full back is almost certain to be a part of the Milan revolution.
