The price tag that AC Milan can get for Gianluigi Donnarumma this summer is set to be slashed due to the collapse of the economy of football.
That is according to Tuesday’s edition of il Corriere della Sera (via MilanNews), which emphasises the crisis facing the world of football. In addition to television rights, gate receipts and sponsors, another inevitable affect of the COVID-19 interruption will be the inevitable decrease of players’ values.
It was actually reported by CIES on Monday that the value of Milan’s squad is down €144m with the Coronavirus pandemic playing a big part in that, and it doesn’t help the club’s negotiating position when it comes to the potential sale of Gianluigi Donnarumma.
The 21-year-old has a deal which expires in just over a year leading to suggestions that he will be sold this summer, with Chelsea, Juventus, PSG and Real Madrid all linked.
The paper goes on to claim that in January the Rossoneri could have easily commanded €50million for the signature of Donnarumma, but now that figure is likely to drop to around €30m, a big boost for the clubs apparently interested.
