CM: Milan preparing to announce signing of €15m Lille star as Donnarumma looks likely to leave

By Oliver Fisher -

AC Milan have accelerated their pursuit of Lille goalkeeper Mike Maignan as Gianluigi Donnarumma is unlikely to renew, a report claims.

As Calciomercato.com reports, Milan secured qualification for the next Champions League last night with their victory over Atalanta and now it is time to start fine tuning the squad ahead of next season. There are still doubts about some of the players who have been the protagonists this season, and Donnarumma’s contract situation has long been a headache for the management.

At the moment it seems as though discussions over a possible renewal are blocked, so much so that Maldini and Massara have already secured his potential replacement. The talks with Donnarumma are far from a positive turning point at this moment and as a result the chances of a renewal are incredibly low.

Milan have accelerated their pursuit of Mike Maignan, who kept 19 clean sheets in Ligue 1 this season. An agreement has already been found with Lille on the basis of €15m plus bonuses and the player has agreed a five-year contract of €3m per year. The announcement will soon arrive.

    Good. We’re all sick and tired of Donnarumma and Calhanoglu bullshit.

    1. F3n says:

      That’s right, next is Rodrigo De Paul plus striker

  2. Kourosh says:

    He’s like a bad tooth. You know it will leave an empty space and it will cost you, but ultimately you have no choice but to remove it.

    Let him go. We should move on but we will never forget though…

    That’s good.. atleast we will not soap opera at the end of every contract period… acting greedy for money…let him Go..don’t wanna see him as captian when he and his agent have one aim..that is to suck the money out the club during this crisis where the club’s are struggling..only wish was we would have sold him . atleast we would have got some money to invest…Ya I hope Hakan also leaves..if need Leao too…

    Gianluigi Donnarumma in 2020-21:

    ➤ 48 Appearances
    ➤ 54 Goals conceded
    ➤ 18 Clean Sheets

    Mike Maignan in 2020-21:

    ➤ 48 Appearances
    ➤ 38 Goals conceded
    ➤ 23 Clean Sheets

    This should be a no brainer.

      To be fair, Serie A is a stronger league than Ligue 1, and Lille are a stronger team within their league than Milan, so it’s not a direct comparison. But essentially I agree, get rid of Donnarumma if he doesn’t want to take what’s been offered. And then no more Raiola players, ever!

    2. rivera says:

      Great stats there and Donna and his notorious manager should stop holding ACM to ransom

      ACM should move on and sign replacement Maigna
      The story with Hakan is the same move on and ACM should find a replacement quick
      This spending big salaries is a death wish for any club, ACM don’t need this

      You can’t compare the French league to the Italian one.

    really don’t understand these journalists who release this kind of garbage to the public, Who is leaving Milan? Donnarumma ?? !! Why ?? Where is he going ?? Lol .. To clarify, this paper deliberately writes such nonsense so that my fans would react, they are not interested in Milan but in their budget .. I think that Milan should sue people like this and ask for big fines because people become nervous because of journalists like this. a player who should focus on the match but has a problem because then the fans attack him thinking he will leave Milan. DONNARUMMA is not leaving Milan, the man will sign a new contract for 3 to 5 years by the end of the month, as well as COLHANOGLU. The matter is resolved .. caooo

    1. Ivy says:

      Why would we spend so much for unloyal player if we could sign the better one?

  6. Joe Helmy says:

    A smart move by Milan. Now, we are waiting for Hakan dan Romagnoli saga. We hope Milan will do another smart move to solve the problem. I prefer to let Hakan dan Romagnoli GO. Milan need a better CB dan more creative No. 10 for Champion League, and also more clinical striker and more productive right winger.

    1. mahmood shabanifard says:

      Agree…both should leave soon…hakan said he talks later about that….maybe at the start of season that there is no time or option to be signed! Romagnoli should also leave milan as Raiola client!
