Former Milan and Italy right-back Ignazio Abate has reportedly rejected an offer to join Sporting CP.
Abate remains a free agent after Milan chose not to extend his contract over the summer.
Gazzetta dello Sport’s Nicolo Schira claims the 32-year-old recently received a proposal football from Sporting.
The Portuguese side are in need of a new right-sided defender after selling Thierry Correia to Valencia.
However, Schira writes Abate knocked back the offer as he deemed it too low.
