Juventus’s defender Gianluca Zambrotta has revealed that he would prefer to join Milan than English champions Chelsea.

The World Cup winner is set to quit Juventus following the team’s relegation to Serie B, but his agent says that Milan would be his ideal destination.

“Zambrotta’s wish is to stay in Italy but not at Juventus, and the only club that can afford the transfer and that have shown a keen interest is Milan,” Giuseppe Bonetto said.

“Should Juve fail to reach an agreement with AC Milan then Zambrotta will consider the other alternatives.

“An agent representing Chelsea will meet Juventus in the next few days. It will be down to Juventus to make the decisions and let us know what the options are once there is something concrete.

“Chelsea are not the only ones interested in Zambrotta as Real Madrid and Barcelona are also keen to sign the player.”
