Gianluigi Donnarumma’s first season at Paris Saint-Germain has not been without complications, and the latest came last night when he made an error in Le Classique against Marseille.
He left Milan on a free transfer and after winning the European Championships with Italy as the best player of the tournament, he found himself all of a sudden rotating with Keylor Navas in the French capital, something that seems to have affected his performances.
Calciomercato.com report how L’Equipe spoke of a potential sensational return to Milan after the possible change of ownership to Bahrain-based fund Investcorp, but in the meantime Paolo Maldini and Ricky Massara have given Pioli a goalkeeper who is proving to be more than up to the task in Mike Maignan.
At this moment Maignan is unquestionably superior to Donnarumma as per the report, while it must also be recalled that Gigio and his entourage have made a precise choise to leave on a free transfer to collect a higher commission and make a qualitative leap to a team who have aspirations of winning everything.
Nobody doubts Donnarumma’s talent and boundless potential, but it seems the idea of him potentially coming back to Milan to recover some confidence is wide of the mark.
