GdS: What Donnarumma told Maldini about Raiola after Milan’s win over Atalanta

By Oliver Fisher -

Gianluigi Donnarumma apparently told director Paolo Maldini that he was operating strictly under the order of his agent Mino Raiola.

According to La Gazzetta dello Sport (via MilanNews), Milan hoped that Donnarumma would finally accept the €8m net per season offer that had been on the table for some time after the club secured their return to the Champions League with a 2-0 victory over Atalanta on Sunday.

The report mentions that Paolo Maldini tried to talk to the young goalkeeper in the hours following the squad’s achievement of sealing a second-placed finish, but he was met with a cold response from Gigio, who apparently replied: “I do what Mino tells me.”

At that point, the patience of the Rossoneri director and the entire Milan management ended and they decided to close the deal for Mike Maignan, who will arrive and be the club’s new number one goalkeeper for next season.

    He was in for the money that why he choosed him to be his agent Mino is doing exactly what Gigio want why will he complain or go against him,life goes on, Milan was there before Gigio and will be after him so bye bye to him.
    Forza Milan

    Good that they kicked him out in the end. It is like, you can’t sign now, you are free to leave.

    He wil be great. He will be rich. He will be a huge factor in driving another big club into immense debt. His agent is good at that.

    We will miss him, but we will be better off. Stability and sustainability is the right way in the football of today.

    Unfortunately there are still dinosaur clubs that will offer more than they can afford and Raiola will exploit that.

    He actually choose money over club/loyalty maybe even happiness. He seems confused and clueless.

    What a muppet.

    Players that need to leave freely or sold:
    1)Dollarumma (because of his attitude) and his brother
    2) Hakan
    3) Meite
    4) Samu
    5) Krunic
    6) Mandzukic
    7) Dalot
    8) Laeo
    9) Pioli (despite what he accomplished)

    Make a couple of good signings after and then continue building from there also.

    Then let players like Hauge and Tonali get the chance to grow and gain confidence. They have had too high expectations placed on them. Pioli is not the right person to get the best out of these players who can form the backbone alone with kessie in the mid

    No goalkeeper should be paid more than other players who actually run on the field and risk/destroy their health for the club. Goalkeepers are always healthy (with minor injuries) and do not contribute to the game as much as other players. It’s simply the nature of the job. Makes no sense to pay dollaruma (first letter small) 8 or 10 million per year and Ibrahimovic or Kessie or Hakan or some other player two or three times less!? No goalkeeper on the world should earn more than 1.5-2 million per year. Especially not dollaruma who made some disastrous mistakes multiple times. He’s not that good. Just a little bit abve average. That’s it.

    I hope someday everytime when he play in san Siro with another club, all the Milan fans in there throw him “money” Again.. That will be a sweet revenge

    He is no $uma,definately no eurouma,maybe some knock off crap from where knock off crap is manufactured.
