AC Milan have decided to sell Davide Calabria at the end of the season and sign a new right back with two names in mind.
This afternoon at Casa Milan there was an important meeting that involved the management, Davide Calabria and his agent Alessandro Lucci. The main topic of discussion between the parties was the future of the Italian player.
The Rossoneri will evaluate any offers for the sale of Calabria because the 23-year-old right back is no longer part of the club’s plans. Andrea Conti is now the regular starter on the right so Calabria wants to play continuously. Thus Davide will leave Milanello when the summer transfer window is open.
As confirmed by journalist Nicolo Schira, AC Milan aim to sell Calabria and then reinvest on a new defender. PSV Eindhoven’s Denzel Dumfries and Barcelona’s Emerson (currently on loan at Real Betis) are the two names Milan are looking to replace Calabria.
Denzel Dumfries is the captain of PSV Eindhoven. Milan offered Ricardo Rodriguez plus cash in exchange for the Netherlands international but PSV refused their bid. Emerson is owned by Barcelona but even next season he’s expected to stay on loan at Betis. Both players have a similar market value of around 20 million.
Selling Davide Calabria would be quite positive for AC Milan’s budget because the Italian is a player from the youth academy thus the Rossoneri would make a full capital gain. Bologna are the most interested club in his services with coach Sinisa Mihajlovic ready to team with his former player. Sevilla too have expressed interest in the Rossoneri defender.
