Davide Calabria continues to run out for every game with the captain’s armband on, but his contract at AC Milan is ticking down in the meantime.
As La Gazzetta dello Sport (seen below) writes, Calabria is the captain of Milan and has now been a regular starter for several seasons, essentially since Stefano Pioli arrived as the head coach.
The 27-year-old full-back has a contract which runs until June 2025, which therefore means it will expire at the end of next season and has less than 18 months left to run.
However, there is no great urgency to immediately find an agreement over a renewal. Instead, once the January window has closed the management will tackle contract situations.
One of them is Calabria’s, given that there appears to be no desire to let his deal run out and instead the idea is to keep him for the seasons to come.
The Italian has in many ways realised a dream, given that he came through the youth sector having joined in 2007, making his way up the ranks.
He received his first ever call-up to the senior team during a trip to face Lazio on 25 January 2015, then on 30 May 2015 he made his Serie A debut in a 3–1 away win against Atalanta.
