Born in Cernusco sul Naviglio, the Province of Milan, Biraghi began his career with Internazionale, playing in its youth teams from 2005 onwards. For the 2007–08 season he spent time at Pro Sesto alongside his club compatriots and youth products. He started his career as a midfielder but later switched and became a left back. He played a few friendlies for the club and participated in their 2010 summer tour, scoring a goal in the Pirelli Cup, helping them to a 3-0 victory over Manchester City.

Biraghi made his first team debut in a competitive game on 24 November 2010, against Twente in the 2010–11 UEFA Champions League, replacing Goran Pandev. Before that match Inter had lost a number of first team players through injury.

Biraghi would be given a starting berth in Inter's next game in the Champions League, on 7 December 2010, against Werder Bremen in what would be a 3-0 home win for the German side, with the likes of Davide Santon moving to wing forward and Cristian Chivu unable to play due to an injury.

In July 2011, he was loaned to Serie B club Juve Stabia. On 27 August 2011, he made his debut for the club in the first league match of the season, a 2–1 loss against Empoli.


In summer 2012, Biraghi was signed by Serie B club A.S. Cittadella on loan, with an option to sign half of the registration rights. In June 2013 Cittadella excised the option for €150,000. However, Inter also paid a subsidy (Italian: premi di valorizzazione) of €50,000 to Cittadella for the loan.

Biraghi was loaned to Catania on 2 September 2013 for €300,000.

Return to Internazionale

In June 2014, Inter bought back Biraghi from Cittadella for €610,000 (€600,000 plus the remain 50% registration rights of Simone Pecorini). He signed a new 4-year contract with Inter in 2014. However, he spent 2 seasons on loan to other clubs before he became a piece-weight of another signing.

He signed a two-year loan deal with Chievo on 6 July 2014.

On 27 August 2015, Biraghi moved to La Liga side Granada CF, after agreeing to a one-year loan deal.


On 11 July 2016, Biraghi was sold to Serie A newcomer Pescara in a definitive deal. On the same day Pescara also signed Rey Manaj in a temporary deal, as well as Gianluca Caprari who was sold to Inter but loaned back to Pescara for a season. Pescara relegated at the end of season.


On 15 August 2017 Biraghi joined Serie A club Fiorentina on loan, with an obligation to buy the player.

International career

Under the new regime of Ciro Ferrara, he made his U21 debut on 17 November 2010, as starting left back in the friendly match that Italy won 2–1 against Turkey. In that match he also featured alongside former Inter teammates Giulio Donati and Luca Caldirola in the defensive line.

He received his first call-up along with Felice Natalino in August 2010 for the 2011 UEFA European Under-21 Football Championship qualification. In the next month, he made his U19 debut against Serbia. Before that, he received only one call-up in 2009 from the U18 team.
