CM: Milan want Gabbia to follow the path set by Pobega

By Euan Burns -

AC Milan want Matteo Gabbia to follow the same path that has been created by Tommaso Pobega when he goes on loan to Sampdoria, a report claims.

As has been reported by, the Rossoneri are going to loan Gabbia out to Sampdoria once they have confirmed a deal for a new defender to bring depth to the squad.

They want the Italian to take inspiration from how the last year of Pobega’s career has gone.

The midfielder was not very close to the first team but had a season on loan at Torino. He became a key player for the Granata and now is returning to Milan with the chance to play very regularly in Stefano Pioli’s side.

Milan think that Gabbia could do something very similar if he has a successful time at Sampdoria under Marco Giampaolo. He will hope that Milan can sign a player like Abdou Diallo soon to allow him to join up with Sampdoria.

  1. Abdou Diallo sucks. Why we choose him over Gabbia is crazy. Gabbia is 1st or 2nd sub this season he will 100% get good game time. If we go for Ndicka this makes more sense but Diallo or Tanganga…. come on….

  2. If Gabbia leaves, there will be only Tomori, Kalulu and Kajer. So that won’t happen. Unless we already have somebody else already signed

    1. Even if we sign another, it won’t happen as long as the new defender is not homegrown as the Champions League squad would be diminished. Right now Milan can only register 23 first team players, if Gabbia is replaced by non-homegrown, Milan can only register 22 first team players and have to depend the rest on primavera players.

      This is just media rumour without any credible or intelligent source.

      1. Something about your obsession with homegrown no count doesnt add up or i may be wrong.

        Can you also give us a count of all the homegrown players list Roma/Inter/Juve have or can register for UCL?

      2. Home grown not a problem,there are many professional on AC Milan already calculated. Last season we dont register castilejo,pelegri. This season they will find another player to be excluded from CL ,let them decide .

        1. Castillejo was an outcast to begin with while Milan temporarily save Pellegri carrer by signing him recently. But you are now talking about excluding players who won the scudetto.

  3. MilanEesti you are right, that dude always bring that issue up even when there is no need, maybe he is UCL team manager 🤣🤣

  4. Fans here dont understand , gabbia need consistently play time like pobega so he can replace kjaer after his contract expire. Gabbia only get to loaned IF we get new defender and loaned to the club that guaranted starter like sampdoria offer to us

  5. I am pretty sure Gabbia will stay, because ACM getting lacks ACM Home-Grown players. We want players that can be registered at CL easily like Gabbia.

    And Gabbia is pretty promising at preseason and pretty deserves to occupy 4th CB.
