Gianluigi Donnarumma is a target of Paris Saint-Germain, but Milan seem to have little interest in Leonardo’s first bid.
News broke last evening that Paris Saint-Germain and Milan have begun negotiations over Gianluigi Donnarumma.
According to Gianluca Di Marzio of Sky Italia, PSG – who now have Leonardo in charge again, after he left Milan, again – are offering the Rossoneri €20 million plus Alphonse Areola for the 20-year-old.
Di Marzio explained that Gigio is valued at only €50 million because he has just two years remaining on his €6m-per-seaosn contract and at the moment there are no signs of renewal talks between Milan and Mino Raiola – who is of course behind the whole thing and wants his client to move.
Areola is managed by Raiola as well and so he doesn’t want both of his clients to battle for a spot at PSG. The French club values their 26-year-old ‘keeper at €30m. Selling Donnarumma would generate a great capital gain for Milan as he grew up in the Rossoneri Youth Sector. In addition, freeing his salary and that of his brother Antonio would allow the club to reinvest in new players.
According to Antonio Vitiello of Milannews.it, however, the Diavolo want a lot more than the reported €20m plus Areola to let Donnarumma go. In addition, the player himself would like to stay at the club and he too needs to be convinced of heading to France and play for the Ligue 1 Champions.
More updates on this are expected in the coming days. Donnarumma’s future is again in question. Leonardo knows the financial situation of Milan very well and could be taking advantage of it.
