AC Milan fullback Ignazio Abate has confirmed he had an offer from Zenit St Petersburg in January.
Abate says he feels wanted at Milan.
â€śWhen Vice-President Adriano Galliani informed me of Zenitâ€™s offer he didnâ€™t even consider it,â€ť the defender told Forza Milan! â€śHe simply asked me to stay.
â€śHeâ€™s the person that wanted me at Milan and heâ€™s never thought of selling me. In the year of the Scudetto, he even turned down an offer from Fiorentina for me.â€ť
