The future of Gigio Donnarumma is yet to be decided. His contract with AC Milan will expire in June 2021, meaning the Rossoneri will either have to renew his contract or sell him this summer.
In an interview with MilanNews.it, Filippo Galli shared his thoughts on the situation. The 56-year-old worked as Milan’s Youth Co-ordinator between 2009 and 2018, thus heavily involved in the negotiations that brought the goalkeeper to the club.
“It was a complex negotiation and the intervention of the top management was decisive. Everyone knew him and everyone wanted him. Certainly also the will of the agent, the family and the boy, were important,” he began.
Of course, given that he came from the youth academy, the Rossoneri would make a full capital gain in the event of a sale. On the other hand, he’s a very important player for the team. When asked, Galli refused to speculate about what is best.
“I can’t get into such an important and strategic decision,” he concluded.
It remains to be seen what will happen in the summer, although it’s clear that Donnarumma’s future at Milan is far from certain. Hopefully, an agreement will be reached for what would be an important contract renewal.
