Zapata moves close to Milan renewal

By Oliver Fisher -

There is growing optimism for the renewal of Cristian Zapata with AC Milan.

Despite coming from different economic standpoints, and technically viable bids (from Besiktas), the will of the Rossoneri and the Colombian defender (due June 30) is set to continue: it is to find the Economic Agreement, and barring accidents it will be completed.

Zapata appeared in 16 Serie A matches for Milan this campaign, and is still clearly viewed as an important squad player for the San Siro club.

He signed his current contract in 2013, a three-year deal taking him to this summer, having joined from Spanish club Villarreal in 2012.
