AC Milan are waiting for the green light from Barcelona to complete the signing of Gianluca Zambrotta.

Controcampo says Milan directors are convinced they will bring Zambrotta back to Italy during the January market, despite claims from the defender that he isn't angling to leave the Nou Camp.

Milan are preparing to lose Serginho and Beppe Favalli at the end of the season, along with Paolo Maldini and Cafu, and are anxious to sign Zambrotta as quickly as they can.
