At the end of the match between Brescia and AC Milan, Mino Raiola – the agent of Bonaventura, Donnarumma, Ibrahimovic and Romagnoli – spoke to SportItalia (via MilanNews.it) about the future of his clients.
The Rossoneri managed to win the game by the odd goal as Rebic once again got on the scoresheet. However, if it hadn’t been for Donnarumma’s incredible performance, then Milan would have conceded the first goal of the game.
“The return of Ibrahimovic? He’s trying to do the best for the team. I hope his career never ends, but if he finishes, he will have to do it in one of the biggest teams in Europe.
“I don’t know if he thought so much about accepting Milan’s proposal. It was the normal timing of a negotiation. In the end, everything went well. There were many alternatives on the plate, but if he chose Milan it was right,” he began.
Ever since the Chinese era of the club, the relationship with Raiola hasn’t been at its best. That said, when Elliott took over and replaced the management, it drastically improved. This didn’t stop the agent from aiming a dig at the owners, though.
“The Milan project? I don’t like it because I don’t think this is the AC Milan that the world knows and I don’t think it’s the team that Maldini and Boban dream of. I don’t think Elliott believe this is the real AC Milan either.
“I have never spoken to Gazidis or with any others, but if this is AC Milan they want, I’d advise him to find a buyer as soon as possible,” he continued.
In the summer of 2017, Donnarumma came close to leaving the club as it was declared that a renewal agreement hadn’t been reached by the parties. A few weeks later, though, the youngster penned a new agreement with the side.
“Donnarumma? I’m still waiting for the apologies from those fans who offended me and threatened me. We go on for the other two years. I don’t want to create any kind of fuss,” he concluded.
