Zapata wants out of relegated Villarreal

Cristian Zapata is eager to leave relegated Villarreal.

The Colombian is being linked with Juventus and AC 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."
