Cristian Zapata: Happy at Milan

Cristian Zapata: Happy at Milan

The 27-year-old Colombian joined Milan in 2012 and was signed as a replacement for Thiago Silva, who joined Paris Saint Germain.

Despite Milan's recent struggles, Zapata has been one of their stand-out performers which has seen him linked with rival clubs.

One of those is United, with reports in England claiming coach Phil Neville had personally scouted him in recent weeks.

But, when asked about United after Monday's 2-2 draw with Roma, Zapata told Italian television: "I do not know anything.

"I am just thinking about Milan. I have a contract until 2016 and I want to stay here."

Zapata previously claimed to have turned down Liverpool in 2011 before he joined Villarreal.

m not sure about this distance covered malarky, plus that stat comes with *since February attached to it, that's just 1 month. I mean I have 27 open cases I'm 'working on' at the moment but believe me others with 10 cases work harder than I do. I just got back from a pub lunch, scampi and chips (+4 pints) in case you were wondering.
