After weeks of speculation, AC Milan really thought they had finally reached an agreement with Gianluigi Donnarumma, only to hear his agent tell them that, after all, the 18-year-old goalkeeper will not sign a new contract with the club.
Milan issued a statement, announcing the bad news to their fans, without though giving any details, for the simple reason that… they had no details at their disposal.
Mino Raiola, Donnarumma’s agent, according to reports, did not explain Milan why his client has decided against renewing his current deal with them, which is due to expire in a year from now.
If he wants to earn more, that’s one thing, but saying he won’t sign a renewal regardless of the terms, is not fair. At this point, I want to know the real reasons he is not signing a renewal. Donnarumma is 18 now, he’s an adult, so he has the right and above all the duty to explain his decision
Giovanni Galli, a keeper that won two European Cups (today’s Champions League) with the Rossoneri told Mediaset Premium, almost… furious at Donnarumma and his agent.
I want people to realise, and all agents to realise, that we are talking about Milan here and not any old club. This club has won seven European Cups and represents Italian football. There must be respect for a club that has given a teenager this incredible opportunity to play regularly in Serie A
the Milan legend added, words that are for sure crossing lots of Rossoneri fans mind these last 24 hours.
