AC Milan full-back Davide Calabria will reject interest from the Premier League in favour of a stay at San Siro, a report claims.
Calabria has become one of the mainstays in Gennaro Gattuso’s back four so far this season, making 21 Serie A appearances this term.
Reports from the English press on Sunday suggested that Manchester United are interested in a move for the 22-year-old, who they view as the perfect replacement for the ageing Antonio Valencia.
Meanwhile, Calciomercato claim that Spurs will battle their Premier League rivals for Calabria, but they will face an uphill battle to sign the Italy international this summer.
Their report claims that he ‘will stay at Milan if offers for him come in the upcoming transfer window’ – despite it being ‘likely that both the Premier League giants make a move’.
Milan chiefs Leonardo and Paolo Maldini are both confident that the player wishes to stay at his boyhood club beyond the summer, and the fact that his contract doesn’t expire untul the summer of 2022 means his renewal is not a priority at this stage.
