AC Milan to Sell Abate To Raise Cash for Balotelli

Luciano Spalletti’s Zenit St Petersburg have reportedly made a proposal for AC Milan’s Ignazio Abate, fuelling speculation the Rossoneri will use the cash to finally snap up Balotelli.

According to Abate’s agent, Milan are willing to negotiate with Zenit if the right offer were to come, as Milan need the cash to finally snap up Super Mario.

“We thank Zenit and Spalletti for their interest, but the lad will remain in Italy with Milan,” agent Claudio Pasqualin told reporters.

“If Zenit raise their offer, then maybe something will change, considering Milan are looking for cash to take Mario Balotelli.”

Spalletti is known to be a keen admirer of Abate, it was reported Milan wanted to get rid of the fullback as well as Robinho to balance the wage bill at the club, and use the funds to sign the enigmatic Balotelli.
