Sky journalist believes Donnarumma ‘will join PSG’ and highlights Raiola’s surprise

By Isak Möller -

Milan have decided to part ways with Gigio Donnarumma, who never responded to the club’s final renewal offer. Mike Maignan has already been brought in by the Rossoneri, while the No.99 doesn’t have a new club yet. 

The likes of Barcelona, Juventus and Paris Saint-Germain have all been mentioned with regards to the future of Donnarumma. However, the effects of COVID have inevitably made it harder for clubs to carry out operations of this cost.

Speaking live on Sky Italia, as cited by MilanNews, journalist Riccardo Trevisani shared his thoughts on the situation. In addition to naming the most likely destination for Donnarumma, he also highlighted the surprise of agent Mino Raiola.

“Donnarumma without a club? Milan took away all the power that Raiola had in this negotiation. In my opinion, he will join PSG, based on my feeling and also the news. Why PSG and not Milan? The parties got stuck in the negotiations.

“Raiola has always won against everyone, but this time he found Paolo Maldini who gave up the talks. It’s an incredible thing and he [Mino] didn’t expect that it could happen with Donnarumma,” he stated.

Even though Milan made the right move by not increasing their offer, it must be said that losing Donnarumma for free is far from ideal. A player of his calibre leaving could have provided a good amount of money, but now that won’t be the case.

    He could be world number one stopper for all we care.. Milan need loyal and committed players. Maldini could have been the highest paid defender in his prime age but he chose Milan over other clubs..Donnaruma lost a home. Milan will still thrive without him. These paid journalists should stop defending Donnaruma actions as a loss to Milan.
    Forza Milan.

      So they want Milan to pay 120Million to signed Donnaruma for 5 years and then sell him after year or 2 at 40Million ? That is even if he have any offers in the future? This would have been a very bad deal for Milan.

      Donnaruma will never be sold for 200Million or 300Million in the future. He is a goalkeeper so why will Milan invest 120Million just to sign him.

      All this journalistic PR is in vain. COVID have thought clubs on the need to be prudent. Imagine playing almost 2 seasons without ticket revenue
