Abate cools PSG talk
Ignazio Abate has played down talk of a move to Paris St Germain and pledged his future to AC Milan.
Abate is a reported target of the French giants but the full-back, who earned his first call-up to the Italy squad this week, says he is going nowhere.
"Leonardo [PSG sporting director and former Milan coach] has been a very important person in my career, but my contract with AC Milan ends in 2015 and my aim is to wear the Rossoneri colours for as long as possible,'' Abate told Gazzetta dello Sport.
"If it was down to me, I would remain at Milan for life as I grew up here, it's one of the most prestigious clubs in the world. Who wouldn't want to stay here forever?''
Abete, 24, made his senior debut with Milan in 2003 but it was under Leonardo that he earned a regular place in the first team.
