Mino Raiola’s Live interview

Mino Raiola had a live interview with several media representatives explaining the reasons why Donnarumma rejected Milan renewal. According to his request the interview will be aired at midnight.

It was first announced as a press conference directly from Montecarlo but it turned out to be a live interview with the major Italian media: Sky Sport, Premium Sport and Rai Sport. Mino Raiola had promised to explain why Donnarumma and he decided to reject the renewal.

Fassone and Mirabelli offered the 18 year old goalkeeper the chance to become AC Milan’s highest earner with a contract of 5 million euros net per season. A considerable increase from the initial offer of 3-3,5 million euros. To everyone’s surprise the player with the support (and influence?) of his agent refused to sign a new contract leaving the rossoneri facing a great dilemma. Sell him immediately or risk losing him for free after one year. PSG and Real Madrid are the most interested clubs for his services and an offer around 40-50 million euros is expected by both teams.

The interview was expected to start at 17:00 but it started one hour latter. Mino Raiola has requested for it to be fully transmitted at midnight because Donnarumma is playing in Euro U21 with Italy today and should be left calm ahead of the opening match.
