Gianluigi Donnarumma is not the one pushing for an exit, as Milan continue to talk with Paris Saint-Germain.
Donnarumma has been Milan’s first choice goalkeeper since the age of 16, but this could be the summer that Gigio and the Rossoneri part ways, as negotiations to sell the player are underway.
“In this story there are two certainties: the first, Milan have decided to sacrifice Donnarumma, both for the FFP but also because they can’t renew the contract which expires in two years; the second is the negotiations with Paris Saint-Germain,” Sky Italia journalist Gianluca Di Marzio said on ‘Calciomercato – L’originale’ last night.
“When he had decided to leave Milan, Leonardo made it clear to the Rossoneri that the first purchase he would try to make would be Donnarumma. Now the negotiations have started, we’ll go ahead looking for an agreement on the evaluations of Donnarumma and Areola.
“The will to leave is not on the part of Gigio, who is waiting for news from his agent. If the negotiations go ahead, he will also sit down to seek an agreement.” The value of Donnarumma, claims Sky, is €50 million. The Diavolo, according to Eurosport France, have rejected PSG’s initial offer of €20m plus Areola, as they want to get a lot more money for the 20-year-old.
Sportitalia’s Pedullà adds that if it was up to Donnarumma then he wouldn’t leave, but as Di Marzio wrote on his website, Gigio understood the need of the club to sell him and make a capital gain.
