AC Milan are ready to reward Davide Calabria with a new contract for his resurgence this season, according to a report.
Heading into preseason it seemed a formality that Milan would sell the Primavera graduate after a disappointing 2019-20 campaign that was hampered by injuries, suspensions and general poor form, but he has bounced back fantastically.
According to Calciomercato.com, Paolo Maldini vetoed a loan departure for Calabria last summer as he was convinced that the Primavera graduate would find the mental strength to recover from a bad season. The director was right to put trust in a player who he knows well, and it has led to the desired results.
In recent weeks sporting director Ricky Massara and Maldini have had contacts with YouFirst, the agency that looks after the interests of the full-back.
The report adds that the parties are moving towards renewal until 2024 with an adjustment to the current €1m net salary. The player did not make any special requests, and his priority remains Milan.
