Milan do not want a reunion with former goalkeeper Gianluigi Donnarumma, who has been linked with the San Siro again.
Crazy Ball – The Rossoneri have made it clear that they will not accept the presence of the Italy international goalkeeper back at their home ground ahead of the 2022/23 season.
Revealed La Gazzetta dello Sportas reported Italian Football, now the 23-year-old goalkeeper has been linked with Milan again after his career in France did not go as expected. His good form went down even as PSG was eliminated by Real Madrid in the last 16 of the Champions League in March, as he made a blunder as Madrid struggled to make a comeback in the second leg.
La Gazzetta dello Sport analyzes Donnarumma’s current situation, and highlights that the player is unlikely to return to Milan next summer.
The reason is, first, because Stefano Pioli’s club has brought in a quality replacement, Mike Maignan. Then, secondly, it is believed that most fans don’t want to see Donnarumma around Milanello in the future.
A few weeks ago, the tall 23-year-old goalkeeper was reported to be considering a return to Italy in the summer. Unfortunately, not many clubs are able to pay his high salary.
Juventus are still relying on Wojciech Szczesny, and the Turin club looks likely to be the only club worthy of a destination if the Milan academy dropout leaves Paris.
However, Szczesny himself is still under contract until 2024, and the Old Lady are not considering signing a new goalkeeper in the summer.
Donnarumma thrived at Napoli’s academy in his homeland, Castellammare di Stabia, where he joined in 2003.
In 2013, when he was just 14 years old, Donnarumma moved to AC Milan – a team that was already strengthened by his older brother, Antonio. From 2013 to 2015, he was still part of the Rossoneri youth team academy, where he always played for the above age group, starting with the Giovanissimi, then the Allievi, and finally the Primavera.
Three days before he turned 16, in February 2015, Donnarumma was called up to play for Filippo Inzaghi’s senior team – although Donnarumma did not play in a league match against Cesena. It was only later in March 2015, Donnarumma signed his first professional contract at the San Siro, which was effective from 1 July 2015 to 30 June 2018.
