AC Milan have confirmed the return of Matteo Gabbia from his loan spell at Villarreal. The 24-year-old spent the first part of the season on loan in Spain, making 13 appearances in all competitions.

In fact, an injury crisis in defense convinced the Milanese management to bring the player back to Milanello from the club’s academy. AC Milan are expected to recruit another central defender during the winter mercato, as chief scout Geoffrey Moncada confirmed on Tuesday. “AC Milan can confirm that an agreement has been reached to end Matteo Gabbia’s loan at Villarreal CF early. As a result, the player will rejoin the first team today. “Welcome back, Matteo”, said the Rossoneri in an official statement on Wednesday. Gabbia will train with his Milan teammates today after returning to Italy on Tuesday evening. “My dream has always been to play for AC Milan, but I’ve also been happy at Villarreal. I’m glad the club thought of me to help the team,” the Italian defender told Sky Sport Italia.
