PSG is showing an interest in goalkeeper Gianluigi Donnarumma of AC Milan. Leonardo, the Parisian sports director, has known the Italian well since his time at AC Milan and convinced the player to join PSG for a long time, reports ESPN.
In 2019, Milan refused to sell Donnarumma to PSG for €20m, but Leonardo is determined to get the 21-year-old goalkeeper. This summer, his new deal with Milan expires, so he may be in negotiations with interested clubs already.
AC Milan was previously said to be willing to pay Donnarumma €7.5m a year on a long-term deal, but player agent Mino Raiola insists on a shorter-term arrangement for €10m a year.
Allegedly, Raiola wants Donnarumma to become (behind Manchester United’s David De Hea) the second highest paying goalkeeper in world football.
If AC Milan, or any other club, meets the financial requirements of the player, he will become the world’s second-highest-paid goalkeeper. Atletico goalkeeper Jan Oblak will be paid the same amount.
This season, Donnarumma has played 20 Serie A games, seven of them with clean sheets.
