Zapata is available for transfer

Cristian Zapata is of transfer interest to clubs in Italy following Villarreal’s relegation, his agent has confirmed.

The Colombian is being linked with Juventus and Milan, less than a year after he left Udinese for Spain in a €9m deal.

“We are talking to a number of clubs in and outside of Italy,” representative Massimo Italiani told

“We’ve had a number of talks already, but it is too soon to make a decision. After all, we can’t do anything until a club reaches an agreement with Villarreal.

“The only certainty is that he will leave. We’re disappointed by the situation he finds himself in, but there are no alternatives.

“Serie A is a championship that Zapata knows well, but his future will depend on what kind of concrete offers arrive.”

Bayern Munich are also said to be interested in the centre-back.
