A 26-year-old sports writer and an aspiring football coach who has road-tripped across the Scottish Highlands, but has never been to Wales. Sucker for cliff-hangers and catchy riffs. Known to be a grunger and not to be a stranger.

In a recent report, Fichajes revealed that Real Madrid are eyeing a move for AC Milan full-back Davide Calabria. It is believed that Los Blancos are hoping to acquire the services of the Italian defender during the summer transfer window.

Calabria’s Decent Form In Italian Football This Season

Calabria is having a solid campaign at San Siro as he has produced a run of impressive displays on the left side of AC Milan’s defence. The 25-year-old has registered two goals and three assists in 31 matches for the Italian giants this season on all fronts.

The talented full-back has been a consistent performer down the right flank based on his average of 2.3 tackles, 1.0 interceptions, 1.1 clearances, 1.5 shots and 0.8 key passes per 90 minutes in Serie A. He has even distributed the ball really well after making 76.2% of his attempted passes in league football (stats via whoscored).

What Will Calabria Bring To Real Madrid?

Calabria is a solid tackler of the ball and can time his challenges well to secure the ball back inside his half. He usually puts his foot through the ball when required and can even chip by scoring and creating the odd goal from time to time.

The Italian sensation is about to enter his prime and would be a good option for Real Madrid to pursue in this off-season. However, the Spanish club should only move in for him if they are planning to play him regularly in top-flight football. Otherwise, they could halt the player’s progress which won’t bode well for the Madrid club in the long run.

We can expect Calabria to bring a lot of quality to Los Blancos boss Carlo Ancelotti‘s defence and offer some serious competition for Dani Carvajal and Lucas Vazquez at the Santiago Bernabeu Stadium over the next few years. Furthermore, the Brescia-born is primarily a right-back but can also fill in as a right-sided winger or as a left-back if required.

At 25, Calabria is a player on the rise and could even help the Madrid giants challenge for a lot of major trophies in the future. Thus, Ancelotti would be wise to bring him to the Spanish capital ahead of the new campaign.
