CM: PSG interest genuine but Donnarumma has mind made up – the details…

By Oliver Fisher -

Gianluigi Donnarumma has no intentions of leaving AC Milan to join Paris Saint-Germain this summer, according to a report.

It was reported earlier in the summer that Donnarumma could be the first once sacrificed by the club to try and raise funds for the mercato, with interest from PSG and Manchester United mentioned.

However those links soon died down, and it then emerged that the 20-year-old would stay with the Rossoneri, with the possibility that he could even sign a new deal on a lower salary.

La Gazzetta dello Sport reported earlier on Wednesday though that the PSG-Donnarumma saga is ready to resume, with the possibility of a Neymar sale funding a fresh approach.

The Ligue 1 giants have of course already seen one bid rejected for Donnarumma – a €30million cash sum plus Alphonse Areola as a counterpart – which was promptly rejected.

Calciomercato.com claim that PSG’s renewed interest is genuine, but there are two major obstacles for sporting director Leonardo to overcome.

Milan reportedly don’t want to lose another youth product, having recently sold Patrick Cutrone to Wolves in an €18m deal.

On top of that, the player himself wants to stay at Milan and has made it abundantly clear that he has no intentions of leaving. Gigio for now, it seems, remains.
