Raiola defends AC Milan chief Galliani over Ibrahimovic sale

The agent of Zlatan Ibrahimovic has defended AC Milan vice-president Adriano Galliani over his sale to PSG.

Mino Raiola insists Galliani is cut up over the Swede's departure.

"Galliani is a sincere, honest and sensitive person. He's saddened to have lost two great players like Ibrahimovic and Thiago Silva. I talked a lot with to the Rossoneri, the proposed sale of Ibrahimovic started in January when PSG signed Maxwell.

"Things have changed in Italy, the top players do not go there, but we can grow, Ibra has always said he wanted to stay at Milan but personally I never said he would close his career with the Rossoneri.

"Zlatan was convinced to stay (in January) but I was not convinced."
