Young Inter Milan midfielder Valentin Carboni could cut his loan move with Monza short during the January transfer window.
This according to Italian news outlet FCInterNews. The outlet cites a relative lack of playing time this season for the Argentine as a factor that could lead to a new solution.
Teenage attacking midfielder Carboni joined Monza during the summer transfer window.
The aim of this loan move was clear. Inter wanted to find the right club for the 18-year-old to start growing into the senior game.
Carboni has shone at youth team level in the Nerazzurri’s Primavera team.
And last season, the young Argentine had a few chances to play for Inter’s senior team. However, these all came off the bench.
The hope has been that Monza would be the right club for Carboni to play relatively regular first-team football.
But so far that has not been the case.
On the opening day of the season, Carboni had a cameo appearance from the bench against his parent club Inter.
But since then, there have been few opportunities for the teenager. Carboni has managed to play 29 minutes of football in total, having not yet started a match.
Inter Starltet Valentin Carboni Could Cut Monza Loan Short In January
Therefore, FCIN report, there is a real possibility that Inter will recall Carboni during the January transfer window.
Obviously a change in the player’s situation at Monza could convince the Nerazzurri to act otherwise.
But at the moment it does not look altogether likely that Carboni will gain much ground in Raffaele Palladino’s team selection in the next two months.
The presence of a number of more experienced options in attacking midfield is a problem for the Inter-owned midfielder.
Particularly the form of Andrea Colpani. The 24-year-old has become virtually undroppable with his performances so far this season.
If Carboni’s loan spell with Monza were to end prematurely, there would be a couple options for him.
One would be for the 18-year-old to join a different club on loan. That would seem the most natural course of action.
FCIN report that Inter would prioritize loaning Carboni to a different club in Italy.
This could even be in Serie B if it meant regular playing time for the Argentine.
And another possibility would be for Carboni to spend the second half of the season in Inter’s first team.
Some uncertainty about the fitness and form of Marko Arnautovic and Alexis Sanchez means that the Nerazzurri are thinking about solutions for January.
And Carboni could well be one idea for the club.
