This is one of the very big shots to achieve during the summer transfer window 2021: Gianluigi Donnarumma (22) is free to commit wherever he sees fit this summer. The goalkeeper of AC Milan, whose market value is estimated at 60 M € by the specialized site Transfermarkt, did not extend his contract which expires on June 30 with the Rossoneri, who also formalized his departure on Wednesday through their sports director Paolo Maldini. The name of his replacement is even already known since it is the former LOSC goalkeeper, Mike Maignan (25).
The native of Castellammare di Stabia, who had put his suitcases on the side of San Siro in 2013 among the young people before making his professional debut with the Lombard club on October 25, 2015, must now find a new base. In any case, the qualities of Gianluigi Donnarumma do not leave FC Barcelona unmoved, to whom his sulphurous agent Mino Raila has offered his services, but also Juventus, where the future of the current number one Wojciech Szczesny (31 years old) remains uncertain.
Barça on pole, PSG enters the dance
But that’s not all. Sky Italia reveals this Saturday, through its journalist Fabrizio Romano, that Paris Saint-Germain is also invited in the race for the signature of the 1.96m goalkeeper. The capital club therefore reactivated one of Leonardo’s hot files in the summer of 2019, before the arrival of Keylor Navas (34). The agent of the Italian international (25 caps), Mino Raiola, is in any case now in direct contact with the management of these three clubs. The always well-informed journalist specifies that the Blaugranas will decide in the next few days what they will do with Gianluigi Donnarumma, while taking into consideration the fact that Marc-André ter Stegen (29) is indestructible in Barça’s goals. .
For his part, Gianluca Di Marzio, journalist for Sky Sport, specifies that it is indeed the Catalan club which is on pole on this file, and that the PSG awaits a return of the entourage of the player. Among FC Barcelona, Juventus and Paris SG, the Old Lady seems to be the formation with the goalkeeper most likely to give way to Gianluigi Donnarumma. After his stint at AC Milan, the transalpine goalkeeper certainly has no shortage of suitors to bounce back. What he will probably do in a major club with international fame. It remains to be seen which one.
Barcelona will decide in the next days about Gigio Donnarumma deal as ‘free agent opportunity’, whether signing him or not – ter Stegen is untouchable. 🔴🔵 #FCB
