AC Milan considering swapping fullbacks with Paris Saint-Germain

Ignazio Abate - AC MilanParis Saint-Germain are interested in signing AC Milan’s Ignazio Abate and could be willing to part with Gregory Van der Wiel in order to land the Italian.

Van der Wiel has found life in Paris difficult since his move from Ajax last season, struggling to find regular playing time under then coach Carlo Ancelotti and Laurent Blanc this season.

According to, his agent Mino Raiola is set to talk with PSG regarding a possible loan move to the Rossoneri along with an option for a permanent deal in the future.

The move would see Abate move in the other direction, as the Italian’s contract is set to expire next summer and talks over an extension appear to have stalled.

Van der Wiel has made 42 appearances for the French club over the past two seasons, while Abate has made 163 appearances for Milan since joining in 2004.
