Milan duo nears Russia switch

Milan defenders Ignazio Abate and Luca Antonini could move to Russia in the winter transfer window, according to an agent who represents both players.

Having spent almost €30 million on Mario Balotelli and Bartosz Salomon, the Rossoneri plan to balance the books by selling one or two players in February.

With Spartak Moscow keen on Luca Antonini and Zenit not giving up on Ignazio Abate, there is every chance that the two deals could go through before the winter transfer window in Russia closes.

Agent Andrea D’Amico, who represents both Antonini and Abate, admits that his clients could soon be playing their football in the Russian Premier League.

“The acquisition of Mario Balotelli and Bartosz Salomon could force Milan into parting with some of their players,” D’Amico told Izvestia.

“I do not exclude the possibility that these could be Antonini and Abate.”

Zenit St Petersburg have already offered €10 million for Ignazio Abate and it is believed they will soon strike a deal with the Rossoneri.

Spartak Moscow, on the other hand, are prepared to offer Luca Antonini an escape route from San Siro, but in order to do so they will have to match Milan’s €4 million valuation of the defender.
