MN: Milan table contract to defender until 2026 with big pay rise – further talks planned

By Oliver Fisher -

AC Milan have offered full-back Davide Calabria a big pay rise in order to renew his current deal with the club, according to a report.

MilanNews writes that there was a meeting on Thursday to evaluate the future of the right-back Calabria, whose contract expires in June 2022 with the club keen to tie him down following a bounce-back season in 2020-21.

The offer from Paolo Maldini and Ricky Massara is a deal worth €2m net per season until 2026, an offer which has not been deemed enough for Calabria from an economic point of view but also in the length of the contract. After 39 appearances in all competitions last campaign, he believes he deserves a bit more.

The talks go on with good feeling on both sides, and in the next few days a new update is expected between the entourage of the Primavera product and the Milan management to try and tie up any loose ends and resolve any small differences.

    I cant see calabria play for Milan. Right flank will always have problem with calabria as a starter. Good for cagliari but not for milan who wants to be top again

      Based on what? He was the best tackler in Serie A last season. Give credit where it’s due. SMH

    I dont want my right back to be the best tackler. We are not in 1980. Modern backs are wing backs. He cant play the whole right flank by himself. Too weak at offensive. No shoots no assists no passes

    1. Juro says:

      Agreed. Solid defensively this season but nothing offensively. Modern full backs must contribute in attack and defend. Give him a raise of course but we should not overpay. Would like to see if Kalulu is a RB or CB. CB he can play for sure as demonstrated

    2. Kourosh says:

      2 goals and 2 assists is not bad. He has a great shot actually, that’s how he scored versus Genoa. He hit the post a few times too the past season.

      You either get someone like Theo who’s unreal offensively but gives away a few costly goals at the back too, or a solid, balanced fullback like Calabria.

    When the ball goes to right flank after build up play milan has problem. And calabria make a long pass at the heart of enemy defense or lose ball trying to continue passin. you like this football? Answer me honestly

      The problem is not with Calabria. We need more offensive RW, as Alexis is not as offensive, but great defensively with amazing work rate. This is why, we usually leaked goals from the left side where Theo is weaker defensively and there would be spaces left by him when he overlapped. I say we need to acquire attacking minded RWB as Calabria’s deputy, while getting a much more offensive and potent RW, while Alexis becomes his deputy.
