Milan Reportedly Keen on Valencia Defensive Talent

Milan have scheduled a meeting with the agents of Facundo Gonzalez to explore the terms of his acquisition. The Rossoneri are likely to part ways with a defender. Mattia Gabbia is rumored to join Villarreal on loan as part of the Samuel Chukwueze deal, Tuttomercatoweb informs.

The Uruguayan talent played in Valencia’s second team last season, logging 37 appearances. Head scout Geoffrey Moncada, who’s now the apical director, monitored him and reportedly compiled glowing reports.

Milan could get an assist in their chase of Facundo Gonzalez by the fact that he has just one year on his contract with Los Murcielagos. He started at Espanyol’s youth academy before joining Valencia in 2019.

The 20-year-old was born in Montevideo but possesses an Italian passport. Therefore, the Rossoneri can acquire him despite already signing Ruben Loftus-Cheek and being close to Samuel Chukwueze as far as extra-EU signings are concerned.

Our Take on Milan and Facundo Gonzalez

Gabbia has played so little after Malick Thiaw burst onto the scenes that they could be content with not replacing him considering the presences of Fikayo Tomori, Simon Kjaer, and Pierre Kalulu. On the other hand, there’s a chance the Frenchman is also utilized as a deputy fullback. They could use an extra man in the back but preferably on the left.
