The Gianluigi Donnarumma saga is far from over because of the repercussions it could have on AC Milan’s market plans, a report claims.
Milan director Paolo Maldini has essentially confirmed that Gianluigi Donnarumma will be leaving the club when his contract expires as he thanked him for his service to the club in an interview this evening.
La Gazzetta dello Sport names Barcelona, Juventus and Paris Saint-Germain as the three main suitors for Donnarumma but it will be hard for Mino Raiola to attract an offer as high as the €8m net per season Milan put forward. Juve first have to sell Szczesny and Barça would have to offload Ter Stegen, but both earn €6m and are no longer young, but PSG remain at the window.
The ‘war’ with Raiola is on and it could affect some of Milan’s other plans involving the Italian-Dutch agent, such as Alessio Romagnoli who may renew his contract (expiring in 2022) plus market target Rodrigo De Paul, who has long been in the notebooks of Maldini and Massara. There is no foreclosure and if a player is interested, a solution is found, but Milan’s relationship with Raiola may never be the same again.
