Ever since he met with AC Milan officials and told them bluntly that his client wouldn’t be signing a new contract, every time he talked to the Press he was rather… aggressive, blaming the club for the whole Gianluigi Donnarumma mess.
Now, Mino Raiola, the agent of the 18-year-old goalkeeper, seems to have changed his… tactics, softening his voice, and reaching out to Milan.
Tweets between me and Gigi are tweets of friendship. After Euros we’ll meet Milan. Now the national team is important
he tweeted, practically denying that there is a rift between him and his young client, who claimed that one of his social media accounts was hacked after a post appeared, which could be interpreted as an intention of his to part ways with Raiola.
What seems to have changed the situation is Milan’s ‘hard game’, their reluctance to sell Donnarumma this summer, even without signing a new deal with him.
Losing him for nothing next summer would be horrible for them, but in the meantime, Donnarumma may have spent a whole season out, which would be equally horrible for him.
For the time being, the young keeper is representing his country in Poland, in the UEFA U-21 championship, where Italy are about to face Spain in a semifinal.
