With the possible departure of Gianluigi Donnarumma this summer, AC Milan must work to find him a successor.
Marco Fassonne, the director general of AC Milan announced the news on Thursday, at a press conference : “Donnarumma has decided not to extend, his decision is final.” End of his contract in 2018, the young keeper between the ages of 18-year-old could leave the club this summer, while his name is sometimes associated with the Real Madrid in the Spanish press. To confront the issue of her replacement, Milan has already started to be interested in a few files.
Wahlqvist, Conti, Jankto… The ten players to watch at the Euro U21
Norberto Neto is one of them. Lining of Gianluigi Buffon to Juventus for the past two years, the guardian of 27-year-old has wanted to leave the Old Lady. According to our information, Milan have contacted the agent of the bouncer. Surveyed by Napoli and Everton, Neto will wait before making his choice. However, the project of the Milan, ambitious enough, could convince him, especially with the frenetic activity of the club on the transfer market. Arrived for free to Juve in July 2015, Neto is a value of 10 million euros according to the club of turin.
On the side of Naples, Pepe Reina is not certain to continue its journey under the direction of Maurizio Sarri. Arrived from Bayern Munich and in the end of the contract in 2018, the goalkeeper may not extend his lease, so that it would have complicated relationships with its president, Aurelio De Laurentiis. At 34 years of age, Reina has some experience, either in Serie A or the champions League. Remains to be seen if the leadership sees it as capable of being the one who can help AC Milan in its aspirations, such as the one priority to regain the champions League next season.
Mattia Perin is a name also approached by Sky Italia. Considered by many observers as one of the great hopes of Italian football, in the same way as Donnarumma, Perin does not offer safeguards at the physical level, who has had two serious injuries with two ruptures of the cruciate ligament. According to the media, the alps, Naples and Lazio have the desire to recruit also.
Alessandro Plizzari, born in 2000, has shone at the World Cup less than 20 years, managing to fend off two shots on goal during the third place match between Italy and Uruguay (0-0, 1 t. a. b at 4). He joined AC Milan at the age of six years old and seems to be able to offer even a few top-tier performance in the coming years. According to Sky Italia, his agent, Tinti, who was at Milan, has already been contacted by the club and has reiterated his desire to extend the adventure of youth Plizzari at the club.
In his ambitious project back to the top, AC Milan must deal with the departure of the future of Gianluigi Donnarumma, who could have become a symbol for this great institution. Faced with his refusal to extend his contract, the club lombard will therefore wish to replace his young prodigy, already spoken by some fans because of his loyalty. The San Siro is therefore in a state of expectation, while Donnarumma, present at the Euro Hopes, is not yet expressed on the subject.
