TMW: Milan inform Gabbia of their plans for his future as Sampdoria express interest

By Oliver Fisher -

Sampdoria have expressed an interest in signing Matteo Gabbia but AC Milan have made their stance clear, according to a report.

TMW reports that in the last few hours, Milan clarified to Gabbia what their thoughts are regarding his future, after another season in which the young centre-back did get some playing time but was ultimately down the pecking order for the majority.

The Rossoneri told him that they are willing to let him leave on loan, but only after the purchase of another central defender to support the current options of Fikayo Tomori, Pierre Kalulu and Simon Kjaer, given Alessio Romagnoli’s imminent exit.

The player wants to play continuously next season and Sampdoria have come forward expressing a desire to facilitate this wish. Their head coach Marco Giampaolo knows him well after his time at Milan, and considers Gabbia as the first choice to replace Yoshida who will leave.

    1. That was crazy. What if tomori kalulu absence together because yellow card and injury , do you want kjaer gabbia pair vs haaland debruyne in CL? Later you will be the first shout pioli out if we lose because play gabbia kjaer together. We need strong CB too since kjaer old and ACL injury

  1. With both Kjaer and Romagnoli unavailable because of injuries last season, Milan went with Kalulu, a full back to play CB instead of Gabbia. That’s how little they think of him. But you want Milan to not sign any defenders and keep Gabbia.
    Milan doesn’t only need to sign a defender but they need 2 of them.
    Kjaer is 34 and coming off a serious knee injury.
    Do people forget that besides the weak serie A , Milan also plays in the Champions league?
    Reinforcements are needed. You can’t go in UCL with just Tomori, Kalulu, Gabbi, Kjaer in defense and Tonali, Bennacer, Krunic , Pobega, Adli in midfield . Outside of Tomori and Tonali , the rest of them has been bench players
    They need to strengthen every area not just the attack & Right wing.
