Sporting Kansas City’s 18-year-old midfielder Gianluca Busio has been getting on the field a lot lately. Six straight starts — all in replacement of Ilie Sanchez who has remained away from the club — all of which lasted the full 90 minutes. Those 540 minutes came in a spot — defensive midfielder — that Busio had never played before, but he’s handling it well. And teams are taking notice. More teams that is.
It seems like since the day he signed his contract at 15-years-old, young Busio has been linked to an eventual move to Europe.
