Gianluigi Donnarumma TEAMtalk

Gianluigi Donnarumma’s time at AC Milan will come to and end this summer if the club fail to secure Champions League football, a report claims.

Milan sit 25 points behind the champions Juventus and in severe danger of missing out on Europe’s top club competition next term.

The Rossoneri head into the final round of games on Sunday knowing they must beat SPAL and hope for a slip up from Atalanta and/or Inter – who face Sassuolo and Empoli at home respectively.

Qualification for the Champions League will have a huge bearing on the club’s summer transfer strategy and wage structure. Missing out on the windfall, which will net this season’s finalists Liverpool and Tottenham around €74m each, will likely mean that players will be moved on.

And, according to il Corriere dello Sport, goalkeeper 20-year-old Donnarumma will be one of those to leave with Milan keen to offload his €6million-a-year salary.

The Italy international, who is contracted until 2021, is reportedly of interest to PSG and Manchester United with La Repubblica recently claiming that the two clubs are ready to battle it out for his signature this summer.

United are believed to be weighing up a €50million offer to sign the young Italian if David De Gea leaves.

Donnarumma does share the same agent as Paul Pogba – Mino Raiola, who has been hit with a three-month transfer ban from FIFA, but it’s not clear if that would be enough to halt a transfer for Donnarumma.

As cited by Sempremilan, Donnarumma responded with the following, when asked about his future: “I prefer not to talk about it.”
