CM: Donnarumma tells team-mates he is leaving as Milan lock in replacement – Juve talks continue

By Oliver Fisher -

AC Milan have decided to proceed with the signing of Mike Maignan from Lille as Gianluigi Donnarumma’s time at the club is set to end.

According to Calciomercato.com, Milan moved fast to beat the competition of Tottenham and Borussia Dortmund to Maignan, given that there has been no movement on the Donnarumma front. Gigio and his entourage led by Mino Raiola showed no signs of opening to the renewal offer of €7m net per season plus €1m bonuses, not even after qualifying for the next Champions League

The management could not be caught unprepared and were unwilling to wait, so Milan prefer to lose Donnarumma on a free rather than accept the costly requests on salary and commissions. The renewal proposal was considered reasonable by the club but not by the goalkeeper, who has already told his team-mates that his adventure in the Rossoneri has come to an end.

Except for twists that would be sensational, Donnarumma will wear a new shirt from July 1st and it could be that of Juventus, as contacts between Paratici and Raiola have continued in recent days.

    What annoys me the most is the level of hypocrisy the guy showed. I know it’s his decision to make but please don’t kiss the jersey. It’s disrespectful. Just look how the kid played us till the end.

    Let him go
    Good riddance to bad rubbish
    Mike Maignan will bring good luck to the team

    He wanted too much money in the end.I wanted him to be the next Cudicini..but he got to greedy.Maignan is a champion with Lilie and should get along with French speakers Kessie,Bennacer and Alexis.

    This is why I respect how Bayern handled Alaba. Beginning of the last year of contract they make an offer, made sure it’s clear it is their top and only offer. When Alaba rejected it, they withdrew it, and no more offers were made after that. Everyone was 100% clear no further negotiations will happen. Player can plan his move, had time to fin dhis replacement.

    No fidelity or loyalty left in the game (in the mold of Maldini, Baresi and other greats of the Rossoneri) even in this case when you have come, grown and nurtured from AC’s vivaio. If money and commissions mean more to the parties (player and agent) please just go and thanks for the past few years. Highly disappointed but hey…….

    congratulation to us All AC MILANO
    LET THE BOY GO INGRATE, UNGRATEFUL ELEMENT

    Real Milan players will not think to much about money. So, let him GO. Without him Milan also can go further with more loyal players.

    I read somewhere that the like of Paolo Maldini had made around 25M euros for his whole career at ACM. A small player, even smaller man and just a goalkeeper Dollaruma who never contributed to Milan nowhere close as Maldini did doesn’t accept 8M per year??? Well, I can’t wait to see him miserable in some other club. With 3-4 good purchases ACM can wi scudetto next year and even UCL. We gave a 7 year chance to Rubentus and they won nothing in Europe, of course. Now watch how we do it!!!

    Just wish they had not let it come to this and sold him at least as we could have re invested the money. If he goes, he goes. Make no mistake about about we have lost a brilliant keeper that has saved us point here and the perhaps one of the reasons we are back in the champions.

    Anyway as long as he goes abroad and not to merda Juve all is good, no more drama. It would be brilliant putting the wining goal against whatever team he joins in the champions.
