Abate agent dismisses City rumors
Ignazio Abate's agent has dismissed reports the AC Milan right-back could be off to Manchester City in the January transfer window.
City are reportedly keeping tracks on Abate with a view to making a move next month but the player's agent Claudio Pasqualin insists the 23-year-old will be staying the San Siro.
He says Abate is more than happy with life in Milan and is poised to open contract negotiations with the Italian giants in the near future.
"I've also heard these rumours, but they have no basis," Pasqualin told Calciomercatonews.com. "Certainly these things are pleasing because it means that they are all realising the potential of the player.
"The truth is that Abate is very happy at Milan and Milan is very happy with Abate. To confirm this I can anticipate that we will meet soon with Milan to deal with the contract extension."
