Zambrotta will not be joining Roma, says agent

The 35-year-old had been linked with a free transfer to the Italian capital but his representative has poured cold water on those rumours
Gianluca Zambrotta's agent, Giuseppe Bonetto, has dismissed reports that his client is in negotiations with Roma, declaring that he does not fit in with their plans.

The Giallorossi are keen on adding cover to the left-back position following injuries to both Federico Balzaretti and Dodo, but the 35-year-old has been ruled out of contention by his representative.

"There is no evidence behind this story," Bonetto said to

"There is no point asking director Walter Sabatini or coach Zdenek Zeman for their opinions on Zambrotta, as it's obvious they'll say he's a great professional, but for obvious reasons he is not in Roma's plans.

“I speak to Walter every day and he confirmed to me this move is impossible. Zambrotta is not part of the Roma project because of his age among other reasons."

Zambrotta is available as a free agent after his contract with AC Milan expired at the end of last season.
