After failing to reach an agreement with agent Mino Raiola on a contract extension, AC Milan goalkeeper Gianluigi Donnarumma will leave the Italian giants. PSG has offered Donnarumma a five-year deal worth £10.3 million per season, and although Barcelona is also keen, the shot-stopper would prefer plying his trade in the French capital. The highly coveted goalkeeper's contract with AC Milan has expired, and he will be ready to join his new club as soon as he has become a free agent.
The Serie A club had been in discussion with Donnarumma's agent, Mino Raiola, for several months but had been unable to reach an agreement on a contract extension. PSG is said to have offered Donnarumma a five-year contract for roughly 12 million Euros (£10.3 million) a year with add-ons. Also, the club is expected to win the battle to acquire the goalkeeper ahead of an embattled Barcelona side after Ronald Koeman held crisis talks with the club's owners ahead of the new season after their display in the season that had just ended.
Donnarumma is performing on international duty with his national team and may even undergo his physical during the EURO 2020 at the national team's Coverciano training facility. Since joining AC Milan as a teenager in 2015, Donnarumma has performed in 251 for Milan in all competitions, maintaining 88 clean sheets, a massive achievement for such a youthful goalkeeper.
Despite only being twenty-two, the Italian shot-stopper is already considered one of the world's best goalkeepers, as his statistics for AC Milan has illustrated. He will be a massive coup for any team in the world, and when you consider that the transfer will be free of a fee, PSG will be delighted that he has chosen to play for them ahead of all the other clubs clamouring for his signature.
