Despite the ongoing rumours that Mino Raiola wants Gianluigi Donnarumma to leave Milan – speculation that has been ongoing for five years now – his renewal is in fact getting closer.
As MilanNews reports, while it is true that Raiola always looks for the most profitable agreement for his clients, this does not mean putting a spoke in the wheel of a negotiation which is proceeding at full speed towards a renewal.
Regarding the Juventus rumours, it must be pointed out that they already have a huge wage bill and pay €6.5m net to Szczesny currently, who recently renewed until 2024 and is very unlikely to be sold at 31 years old. Therefore, Juve can be ruled out because they don’t make sense as a destination both technically and economically.
Meanwhile, it is ‘absurd’ to think that Donnarumma would think of betraying the Rossoneri fans and joining Inter despite speculation that the Nerazzurri have made an offer.
Contacts with Gigio’s entourage are ongoing and the negotiation is obviously not straightforward, but the fact that the player wants to stay makes all other hypotheses remote chances at this point. The Rossoneri’s excellent 2020 – which could coincide with qualification for the Champions League – would eliminate the only possible hitch, which is that that Donnarumma has not yet made his debut in the top European competition.
