World Cup-winning Italian full-back Gianluca Zambrotta could soon be joining the ranks of giants AC Milan, if the club can agree terms with Barcelona.
“The difference is two million euros. The player hopes to come to Milan and the Barcelona management is aware of it,” said a spokesman from an Italian football association.
“But Barca is an extremely expensive 'boutique'. They have no sooner opened the bidding than they are up 30, 40, or 50 million – figures that are not compatible with any budget,” he added.
The Italian club last week signed France's rising star Mathieu Flamini, after the 24-year-old refused to sign a new contract with Arsenal.
AC Milan failed to make the cut for next season's Champions League competition after finishing fifth in the Scudetto, and will now compete in the UEFA Cup.
