Agent Mino Raiola has hit back at the AC Milan fans who were not best pleased with Gianluigi Donnarumma’s decision to leave for Paris Saint-Germain.
At the beginning of the summer, Milan parted ways with Donnarumma as the goalkeeper decided not to renew his contract. It was a big blow for the Rossoneri but ultimately many believe they made the right decision out of principle.
The youngster and his agent, Mino Raiola, were apparently asking for a very high amount to sign a new contract and Milan didn’t agree to that. A lot of fans were upset by this stance, while others acknowledged that the Rossoneri were simply following their policies.
Raiola spoke to RAI Sport about Donnarumma’s decision to leave the Rossoneri and try a new experience in his career, insisting that in his eyes what happened was far from a ‘betrayal’ as some are making out.
“I am sorry for the way Donnarumma was treated. He made a life choice, there was no betrayal. He could have left four years ago and he didn’t,” he said (via Francesco Porzio).
“I think Juventus still have a great regret about him. And not only Juventus. There is no fight between Gigio and Navas at PSG, Gigio will play,”
