Bayern Munich striker Luca Toni has urged Italy teammate Andrea Barzagli to quit Palermo and join him in Germany next season.

He said: "I will stay here next season too. I told the board that I would like to have an Italian teammate and they tried with Gennaro Gattuso. It's a pity he didn't come, but now Andrea Bazargli is very welcome.

"Sooner or later I will come back to Italy because I want to try and reach 100 goals in Serie A."
