Official: Zambrotta Signs For Milan
Milan have finally captured Barcelona defender Gianluca Zambrotta after reaching a deal with the Blaugrana on Saturday night.
The club have announced the news following months of speculation linking the player with a move back to Italy.
Zambrotta is believed to have arrived on a three year deal from the Camp Nou side and reports in Italy claim Milan paid €8.5m for him. He will earn around €4m per season.
A statement on the club’s official website reads:
“It’s now official. Gianluca Zambrotta is now a Milan player.
“The defender is about to play in the European Championship with Italy and he leaves Barcelona to strengthen the Milan defence.”
Only hours ago, Galliani hinted that his side needed someone like Zambro and his wish has been granted. Zambrotta has always stated his desire to play for the Rossoneri in the past and he has given up Champions League football next season in order to return to Italy.
He will now be looking to partner former Azzurri team mate Alessandro Nesta in defence.
The Rossoneri have, so far, strengthened their midfield and their defence. All they need now is a goalkeeper and a decent striker.
