CM: Milan plan to reward Gabbia for contributions – renewal imminent

By Oliver Fisher -

AC Milan are close to extending the contract of Matteo Gabbia having been in discussions with his agents for some time, according to a report.

While there is a lot of attention and speculation surrounding the signings that Milan might make to bolster the squad available to Paulo Fonseca, there is also the need to renew some players in order to protect the core.

Mike Maignan and Theo Hernandez are the two most talked about cases to resolve because of their salary demands and their status as among the best in the world in their respective positions, but there are other names too.

According to the latest from Calciomercato.com, Milan have been in contact with Gabbia’s agents for a few weeks over the extension of his current contract which is set to expire in June 2026.

On the table there is a renewal proposal with a pay rise and the deadline would be extended by two years, therefore until 2028. The parties are ‘quite close to reaching a definitive agreement’ as per the source.

Gabbia spent the first half of last season out on loan at Villarreal in LaLiga and was recalled in January due to an injury emergency. He ended up making over 20 appearances in the second half of the season, and impressed.

  1. Gabbia has good potential. He’ll never be the fastest but he’s awesome through the air and still developing at age 24. It’s good they’re getting him extended.

  2. It’s funny when you see he’s still only 24 years old but it feels he’s been around for ages.

    Hope you continue where you left off kid.

  3. Wouldn’t mind seeing him next to Buongiono next season, especially if the reports they’re gonna sell Tomori is true

  4. Deserved. He’s improved so much. As far as I’m concerned he deserves to start until Thiaw or Kalulu and even Tomori get back to their best.

    1. Totally agree.
      There is no pressing need to sign a new CB unless one of Tomori, Thiaw or Kalulu is being sold.
      Kjaer leaving is easily covered by Gabbia not being sent on loan and promoting players like Simic from the youth team.

  5. Gabbia has always performed when given more than 5 min each year. How about we allow him to start bc he earned it.

  6. His form after he returned from loan early was one of the best aspects of the season. I’d say only it was only bettered by the impact Pulisic made in his first season.

    Get him extended and give him more game time!
    It is essential for UEFA lists that we get more ex-academy players like Gabbia as key members of the squad.
