Donnarumma, Closer: He Doesn’t Renew his Contract with AC Milan


Gianluigi Donnarumma is the first target for many clubs this summer. AC Milan have announced that the player has refused to sign a new contract for the club and he will be free to leave Italy in the summer of 2018. Therefore, AC Milan need to negotiate the sale of the player this summer if they want to make some money.

Marco Fassone, general director at AC Milan, made the official statement, after a meeting with Mino Raiola, Donnarumma’s agent: “Raiola told me that Donnarumma won’t renew his contract with Milan. It’s the final call. We had a lot of trust on Gigio to be the goalkeeper of the new Milan, the base to build our new project, but we have to review our plans… This decision makes us sad but we’re keep going forward. Milan continue”.

After his words, Gigi Donnarumma is in the market. The 19-year-old goalkeeper has been one of the best goalkeepers in Europe in the last two years despite of his age. Real Madrid former goalkeeper Diego López had to leave the club, because Donnarumma closed his path in the club. He will be Buffon’s replacement in the national team and he has become the best player of his club.

Now, many clubs would like to sign the Italian goalkeeper but Real Madrid have preference, according to Sportitalia. These sources say that Mino Raiola told Milan that Real Madrid have already made an offer to Donnarumma, who will get €6M per year and he would sign a long-term contract.

Therefore, the debate in Real Madrid’s goal has turned dramatically. Donnarumma is now the first option and David De Gea is further away from Santiago Bernabéu. Although the Spaniard said goodbye to Manchester United supporters after the last game in the Premier League, now no one knows if De Gea will join Real Madrid. On the other side we have Keylor Navas, who has the support from all his colleagues and he’s been able to win two Champions League titles on a row with great performances.
