AC Milan had an eye on a young Spanish midfielder last night as Parma almost pulled off a big shock against Inter at San Siro, according to a report.
Calciomercato.it report that Adrián Bernabé was under observation by Milan, a defensive midfielder that will turn 22 on May 21. He is a player with pedigree given he was in the youth sector at Barcelona before moving to Pep Guardiola’s Manchester City and then ending up at Parma to get more playing time.
He was forced to miss the first half of last season due to a heart problem but two braces against Cosenza and Como in April reminded everyone – especially Milan – that he is capable of being decisive.
The Rossoneri management have continued to monitor the development of Bernabe and watched him against Inter last night as Parma took the Nerazzurri to extra time and were unlucky to get knocked out.
Bernabé would fit with Stefano Pioli’s tactical approach and given that his contract will expire in June 2024, the summer market could present an opportunity to negotiate, without a renewal of course.
