Zambrotta future put on hold

Gianluca Zambrotta doesn’t yet know whether he will be offered a new contract by Italian champions Milan.

The veteran, who turned 35 on Sunday, is only tied to the Rossoneri until June 2012 and it is unclear what his future will be.

“There is nothing new to report and I doubt there will be any time soon,” agent Marcello Bonetto told Milan News.

“Milan have quite a few players whose contracts are expiring, so I think we’ll have to wait until the end of the season to see how much and how well Gianluca has played.

“Zambrotta wants to continue playing, though, as he has no thoughts of retiring. Now we must see what Milan’s plans are.”

The 2006 World Cup winner, formerly of Juventus and Barcelona, joined the Rossoneri in the summer of 2008.

“Zambrotta could move on – even opt for a move abroad,” the representative added. “However, he won’t join a small club because he doesn’t deserve that.”
