AC Milan boss Marco Giampaolo could choose to keep Matteo Gabbia around next season after his impressive display against Bayern Munich, a report claims.
The 19-year-old defender played a full 90 minutes against the Bundesliga champions in Kansas City on Tuesday night, putting in an assured performance in a narrow 1-0 defeat.
He spent last season on loan at Serie C side Lucchese and performed very well with Italy at the recent U20 World Cup.
According to a report from Calciomercato.com interest in Gabbia has arrived: Serie B side Chievo are interested in loaning him, while Brescia are interested in signing him permanently.
However, Gabbia has seemingly impressed at the right time, as Giampaolo is now reportedly intrigued by the player and could decide to keep him at the club.
It is no secret though that the Rossoneri looking to sign a new defender since Mattia Caldara won’t return until October, but Gabbia could stick around for the time being to provide key depth.
