Juventus director Paratici responds to rumours of interest in Milan star Donnarumma

By Oliver Fisher -

Juventus director Fabio Paratici has branded Gianluigi Donnarumma a ‘good player’ but gave little else away when asked about interest.

The Italy international has less than two months remaining on his contract, and amid rumours of Juventus interest and exchanges with fans at the training ground, his future at Milan has never been so uncertain.

A number of sources have claimed Juve are keen on landing the 22-year-old, and il Giornale (via MilanLive) even provided the details of the contractual offer presented by Juventus. They claimed that the Bianconeri have tabled five-year deal – therefore until June 2026 – at €10million net per season.

It serves as a middle ground between the €8m-a-year offered by Milan and the €12m initially requested by Raiola. From this, we can deduce that for Juve it would be a net commitment of €50m over the five years and €100m in gross (including tax). The most shocking part of it concerns the commissions that Juve would be ready to grant to Raiola, as they are willing to give him €20m and also €3m to the goalkeeper’s father Alfonso Donnarumma.

The paper writes that the €123m package is an amount which Milan currently cannot compete with, and both Donnarumma and Raiola appear very tempted to accept the Juve offer, though they must first offload Wojcech Szczesny.

Juve’s sporting director Fabio Paratici was interviewed by Sky Italia before the game against Milan tonight.

“The rumours of the transfer market are there for many players, the transfer market lasts all year. We have lived them normally, there are rumours as for all the other players and there are also for Donnarumma. He is a good player, for Milan, we are focused on the game,” he said (via MilanNews).
