Barcelona skipper Puyol linked with AC Milan

Barcelona captain Carles Puyol is being linked with AC Milan.

El Mundo Deportivo says Milan see Puyol as a natural replacement for retired captain Paolo Maldini.

The Spain defender has less than a year left on his current contract and is also the subject of interest from Manchester City.

Puyol has admitted in the past that the one club he would leave Barca for would be AC Milan.
