Palermo president Zamparini: Juventus wanted Barzagli for over year

Palermo president Maurizio Zamparini admits defender Andrea Barzagli could easily have been preparing to face them with Juventus this weekend.

"Juve were unsettling Barzagli for over a year," said Zamparini. "They really wanted him and I was ready to let him leave.

"But then I had a change of mind."

Meanwhile, the Palermo supremo also revealed: "I think we may offer a new contract to Amauri."
