Barca eye Zambrotta replacement !!!

Barcelona full-back Gianluca Zambrotta may be set for a return to Italy. The Italian international has today been linked with European Champions AC Milan after is was revealed that Zambrotta's wife, Valentina has become increasingly home sick. Zambrotta joined Barca last summer after leaving Juventus due to the whole match fixing scandal.

The World Cup winner has never really performed amazingly well whilst at the Camp Nou and AC are said to be keen on offering him a route back to Italy. If Zambrotta is to leave in January the Barca will need a new full-back and Bayern Munich's Phillip Lahm has been repeatedly linked with a move to Spain.

Lahm has made no secret of his desire to play for the Spanish giants and would be the perfect replacement for Zambrotta. I think Zambrotta will leave Barca in January but I'm not sure for how much. I think if Barca were to sell Zambrotta and bring in Lahm it would terrific because Lahm is six years younger than the Italian and in my opinion and better player.

    how can you say lahm is better than Zambrotta? Zambrotta is far much better due to all his medals and fantanstic ability to play both righ and left back. Lahm only is just not in the same calibre as Zambrotta.
