Pepe Reina will say goodbye to Milan already next week, and the club is considering 2-3 foreign options.

Gianluigi Donnarumma is the undisputed starter at Milan and he has been for the past four years. Pepe Reina, who was brought in by Massimiliano Mirabelli and Marco Fassone when it wasn’t sure whether Gigio would stay, spent the majority of his Milan career on the bench, trying to help Donnarumma grow.

However, now the time has come for Reina to move on. According to Gianluca Di Marzio, the Spaniard wants to play more. Soon, his move to Aston Villa will be completed.

Aston Villa had a meeting with Reina’s agent on Thursday and an agreement was reached in full yesterday. The 37-year-old will join the Premier League outfit on loan with an option to buy at the end of the season. John Percy of the Telegraph reports that the medical will be done early next week.

Milan have been linked with names like Emiliano Viviano and Marco Sportiello, but Di Marzio states that the replacement of Reina will be a non-Italian figure and Milan are thinking of 2-3 profiles. Milannews.it suggests that Joe Hart, who is the second-choice goalkeeper of Burnley, has been offered to the management and they are considering him. Hart previously played for Torino.

It is believed that Hart would accept a six-month contract at Milan.

why dont milan resign gabriel instead. he’s relatively young, serie a proven and i saw him did well vs udinese, im sure he’ll be so eager to prove himself if he’s given 2nd chance. play him in coppa italia matches so he’ll feel appreciated. why would anyone want to sign burnley’s 2nd/3rd gk? lets not pull an ance/galli and collect retirees ever again, shall we?

Gabriel?! The guy who only knocks out own players and is totally useless? Yeah, no thanks! I’d rather have Plizzari back from his loan and start getting ready to be number one once Gigio leaves (this summer?).

And I think I’d even prefer Abbiati back instead of Gabriel. 😀

While I agree Plizzari is our future. I think some games under his belt this year will serve him better than sitting on our bench.
