At AC Milan since:2015

After taking his first steps as a footballer in the youth teams at Virtus Adrense, Davide, at the age of 11, was identified and asked to join the club by AC Milan talent scouts. Starting off in a central-midfield role in the Esordienti level, he immediately began to show his ability with both feet, and in attacking and defending phases of the game. In 2014, he reached the Primavera squad, and under the leadership of Filippo Inzaghi, became a fundamental part of the team, that culminated in winning the Viareggio Youth Tournament.

He made his Serie A and first-team debut on 30 May 2015, at the age of 18, and lifted his first trophy the following season, a win over Juventus on penalties in the Italian Supercup. An Italian call-up soon followed, 9 April 2017 to be exact, after making several impressive appearances for the Azzurri's younger age group teams.

His development and progress continued into the following seasons, where he gradually became a mainstay and reference point in the Rossoneri's backline. In the blessed 2020/21 season, he played a significant role in earning AC Milan a return to the Champions League with 32 appearances and two goals, and made his international debut in a friendly against Estonia. His reputation further increased in the 2021/22 season, where he scored the fastest Serie A goal of the season in Bergamo at Atalanta, and took over the captain's armband on several occassions. In all competitions as of June 2022, he has featured 184 times and become one of the league's best right-backs.
