Parma chief Leonardi: Zaccardo was desperate for AC Milan move
The Italy fullback signed for the Rossoneri last week.
"He wanted to join Milan," Leonardi told Sport Italia. "In situations like this I ask players to stay if they have the desire to stay.
"He wanted to fulfil a dream and we put ourselves at his disposal.
"Zaccardo's CV speaks for itself. He has great experience which can be added to that of the other Milan players."
