Transfer Rumors: Milan To Sell Star Amid Paris Saint-Germain Interest

Milan entered the summer transfer window hoping to make the right deals that would take them to compete at the best level again, but now their plans must be changed given the latest events surrounding the Rossoneri. Days after they were ready to disburse a considerable amount of money in new signings they are in need to sell some of their best assets trying to ease their finances.

The Italian giants look set to part with Gianluigi Donnarumma, as Paris Saint-Germain increase their interest in the goalkeeper following Gianluigi Buffon’s departure from the French capital. Donnarumma, 20, has already played over 150 games for Milan and made 12 senior appearances for Italy as the successor of the aforementioned Buffon.

In the past, the young keeper was the subject of several rumors regarding his future, but now a departure from San Siro looks like an actual possibility for him and his team. With that in mind, Milan apparently want to ship him in order to cash in while they still can and balance the books.

The 7-time Champions League winners have been found guilty of breaching Financial Fair Play regulations and as a result, they have been banned from European football for the upcoming season.

According to Sky Sports Italia (​via Football Italia), the goalie has not asked to leave the club but he is open to joining Les Parisiens this offseason. ​Milan value the 20-year-old at around €50 million and, ​Gianluca Di Marzio reports that PSG have already made an offer for the player of €20 million plus Alphonso Areola, as they value Areola at €30 million.

The Italians, however, don’t think that Areola is worth that price, but negotiations can still come to fruition as the two sides are set to get a deal finalized as soon as possible. Donnarumma would land in Paris to do the same that he’s currently doing in his national side: replace Buffon.

He is reportedly eager for a move to Paris and his dream can become a reality in just a couple of days.
