At only 21 years old, Andrian Bernabé has already played for top football clubs such as Barcelona and Manchester City. He is not an ordinary young talent, possessing skills in both his feet and his mind that are rare among players his age.
Parma recognised this and, based on the recommendation of Enzo Maresca, who had coached him in Manchester City's Under 23 team, brought him to Italy almost two years ago. Despite a cardiac issue that arose at the beginning of his time in Emilia, Parma waited and cared for him for several months, writes Calciomercato.com.
While this unexpected setback slowed the growth of the class of 2001, the second half of last season confirmed the potential that was seen in Bernabé during his time in the youth teams of Barcelona and Manchester City. This led to interest from several clubs in Italy's top flight including AC Milan, Juventus, and Atalanta. However, Adrian decided to stay at Parma for another season, despite some physical problems.
He has been standing out in Fabio Pecchia's lineup, even as they are currently out of the playoff zone. Bernabé has the potential to make a jump to the top category regardless of Parma's position. Teams such as Torino and Salernitana are closely following him, while several La Liga clubs are also interested in bringing him back to Spain.
The AC Milan target, Adrian Bernabé, has made 24 appearances in total so far this season with Parma with one goal and one assist to his name. He stands at only 170 centimetres tall. The player who is a skilled left-footed midfielder has a contract with his club until June 2025.
