From Spain: Barcelona ready to sell star man and eye Milan youngster to replace him

By Oliver Fisher -

Barcelona have a concrete interest in signing AC Milan goalkeeper Gianluigi Donnarumma on a free transfer, according to a report.

The latest regarding Donnarumma suggests that things are not exactly a walk in the park. La Gazzetta dello Sport reported this morning that Mino Raiola, his agent, wants €10m net per year to renew because he believes that Gigio deserves to be one of the highest paid goalkeepers in the world.

Milan have instead offered a contract until 2026 worth €7.5m net per season and at the moment this figure does not satisfy Raiola, who aims to get a better offer. Not only that, but the paper adds that there is no agreement on the duration of the contract as Raiola wants a one or two-year extension so that there can be further negotiations down the line.

Paolo Maldini could therefore give the ok for a contract until 2024, but Raiola also wants a release clause that the leadership do not want. In short, there is still plenty to be done.

It seems as though news of the difficulties has reached Spain, as DonBalòn are reporting that Barcelona view Donnarumma as the ideal low-cost reinforcement.

The Catalan giants are ready to let Marc-Andre ter Stegen leave and aim to replace him with Gigio, who they consider to be one of the best U23 talents in the world.

Mino Raiola has a very strong bond with Joan Laporta, who is the favourite to take the place of the outgoing president Bartomeu, so Raiola could push his client towards the Nou Camp.

    A swap deal will be better for Milan to get rid of Mino R and also get a better and experience replacement for Gigio in Ter Stegen

      If we think in such a manner, we ought to sell or swap the half of our current team, given that Mino represents literally more than half of our first team’s players!

      1. Sangalo says:

        He only represented 3; Ibra, Roma and Donna. But sincerely, Milan really needs to do something about this Raiola and Donna issue.

        I agree Mino is an evil that milan have to live with.
        They can swap deal for some else and in another year the new player, who’s say may change managers to Mino.

  2. Ridwan says:

    Since several years ago, i already mentioned that we have to push our player to not use raiola as their agent.

    He is a pig.

    Punish,if we don’t punish him now, raiola will take our another player again.
    Romagnioli is the example, he become romagnioli agent and now we struggle for romagnioli extention.

  3. Milan Fan says:

    I totally agree, we need to stop doing business with Mino Raiola, he is the only agent every clubs do have a problems with, that’s why Sir Alex have never done business with him, we don’t need that headache from an agent.
