According to AC Milan sporting director Massimiliano Mirabelli, goalkeeper Gianluigi Donnarumma will not be allowed to leave AC Milan this summer.
The 18-year-old goalkeeper told Milan last week he did not wish to renew his contract, which runs until the summer of 2018, opening up the prospect of a possible transfer this summer.
However, Mirabelli has insisted the Italy international won’t be sold, despite the San Siro club running the risk of losing the highly coveted keeper for free next summer.
“Donnarumma is a great champion, a great guy and a Milan player,” Mirabelli told Sportitalia.
“For this next season, he will certainly play with us still.
“It’s the coach who makes the decisions. They say who will make the bench or sit in the stands — it is not in heaven or on earth.
“This applies to everyone — not only for Donnarumma, but also for the other players and those who will come.”
I get that Milan fans are officials are furious with Donnarumma’s stance, but what is the use of having him sit on the bench for the season. If you are going to see him leave for nothing in 12 months time, let him play every week as you will not find a better option in goal in Serie A next season.
What do you think Milan should do with Donnarumma? Should they sell him this summer or let him leave for free in a years time?
