The most likely successors of Donnarumma
With Gianluigi Donnarumma likely to be sold in the summer AC Milan are looking at three goalkeepers to replace him and a surprising forth option.
Since taking over full management powers from Paolo Maldini and Zvonimir Boban, Ivan Gazidis is the only one deciding which AC Milan players will be sold, which will be signed and whose contract will be renewed.
While AC Milan have no intention to let captain Alessio Romangoli leave, the situation is much more different and complicated for Gianluigi Donnarumma.
The contract of the 21-year-old Italian goalkeeper expires in one year and so far the parties have made little progress regarding an extension. If nothing happens until the end of the season the Rossoneri will sell Donnarumma to the highest bidder.
Three years ago former sporting director Massimiliano Mirabelli defeated Mino Raiola and convinced Gigio to sign a new contract in the stressful summer of 2017. However, the new management is having little success in this direction.
Nevertheless, AC Milan don’t want to get caught unprepared and are already planning for life after Gianluigi Donnarumma. The Rossoneri have a three-name list for Gigio’s successor with two Italian keepers and one Argentine.
