Considering the difficulties for other targets, Milan have come to the conclusion that the easiest way to fix their defense is to bring back Matteo Gabbia from Villarreal. He’s currently on loan to Villarreal with no strings attached. The Spanish side doesn’t have an option to buy and didn’t pay a fee to have him, Matteo Moretto informs (via SOSFanta).
While the center-back has logged 11 appearances, he hasn’t been a full-time starter. El Submarino Amarillo has cycled through three coaches already. The Rossoneri are in touch with the counterparty to see whether they’d want a small compensation to interrupt the spell sooner than anticipated.
Gabbia could wind up being the only addition by Milan in the role. Theo Hernandez adapted well to the position versus Frosinone. The initial strategy was to sign two defenders, but it can vary rapidly. The front office would have more resources for other roles in that event.
According to Sky, the Rossoneri have almost finalized their agreement on personal terms with Juan Miranda. Once that happens, they’ll contact Real Betis to ask how much they’d want to sell him in January.
Our Take on Milan, Gabbia, and Miranda
Hernandez worked out against Frosinone, not exactly the most demanding match-up. If he held up versus Fiorentina, then he’d become a real emergency option. Still, the Rossoneri have short-term holes, but they are in good shape for the future, as Fikayo Tomori, Malick Thiaw, and Pierre Kalulu are all young-ish.
