MN: Milan not worried about Kessie’s potential exit as Donnarumma saga teaches a lesson

By Oliver Fisher -

The AC Milan management and ownership continue to send a message to players who demand too much to remain at the club, and the strategy seems to be working so far.

MilanNews takes a look at the situation involving Gianluigi Donnarumma over the summer and his eventual move to PSG. Of course his error in their Champions League exit to Real Madrid does not change the fact that he is among the strongest goalkeepers in the world, but Milan have proven they can cope even without an elite-level player in their ranks.

Donnarumma did not want to renew his contract with the Rossoneri and instead chose the astronomical figures and the ambitions of PSG, snubbing the offer of Maldini and Massara that they believed to be fair.

The directors chose to seal a deal for Mike Maignan with Lille, and he arrived in what you could consider to be a low-cost operation considering he had the most clean sheets in Europe’s top five leagues last season, asking for a far lower salary than Donnarumma too.The pitch speaks too, as the transition from the Italian to the French goalkeeper is not having a negative impact at all.

Now, the same idea could be repeated with Franck Kessie as Milan made their to the midfield some time ago and they do not intend to raise it, despite the Ivorian’s entourage continuing to ask for figures that are widely out of reach and are not logical for what Kessie has shown on the pitch.

If an agreement is not reached in a short space of time, Milan already know that they can do without Kessie because they can always replace him properly, as the Donnarumma saga showed.

  1. Dollaruma wants 12 fkin million /year yet he still made dumb mistakes after dumb mistakes that he did in Milan lol.

    Is he a great GK? Yes. But people seems overestimated his capabilities and didn’t count many reasons that helped him why he played well last season.

    Nonetheless we already got a much better GK with Mike. So yeah, Dollaruma can rot for all i care 😂

  2. Finally some sense in football. Can’t wait to see Kessie in Barcelona and not wearing the Milan jersey. Mercenaries out.

  3. Hopefully Milan throw out their last, best, final offer for Kessie and say, “take it or leave it.” And if he doesn’t want it, that’s it. No more negotiation.

  4. donnarumma was bailed out by kjaer many times last season for milan. but psg defence was in shambles and so donnarumma’s mistake was exposed.
