Mike Minnan in the net of Milan next season. Surprise champion Lille’s goalkeeper underwent a medical examination on Tuesday at the Rossoneri stadium. This most likely marked the end of the Milanese era for Gianluigi Donnarumma.
The chance to buy the Lille Champion team next summer is very great. Coach Christophe Galtaire moves to Lyon, Nice or Naples and goalkeeper Mike Minyan may follow him to Italy. Of all the goalkeepers in the major European leagues, the 25-year-old has kept his goal clean for most matches this season.
Milan were linked with Minyan for a while and hit this week. The Frenchman arrived in Milan for medical checks on Tuesday to move to the second-place holder in the Italian Serie A, who can finally participate in the Champions League again next season and will pay 15 million euros in addition to Lille bonuses. Minian signed with Alexis Saelemakers for five years and earns roughly 3 million euros a year.
A piece of cake compared to the requirements of the number one player currently at Milan, Gianluigi Donnarumma. The 22-year-old Italian, who has been playing in the first team since he was 16, is said to have asked for 12 million euros annually to extend his expiring contract. Milan did not want to cross 8 million a year, and therefore Azzurri’s number one would likely have to leave a free agent.
According to Italian media, competitor Juventus is at the forefront of bringing in “Jeju” as soon as Wojciech Szczesny is sold. Many English clubs will be interested in the Polish goalkeeper. Donnarumma could win € 10m plus bonuses in Turin, an offer that coach Mino Raiola agrees. Moreover, as is often the case, the Dutch can make a lot of money from “free transfer” of their client. There is an amount between 15 and 20 million euros. Remarkably, a few weeks ago, Donnarumma had a problem with some Milan fans, who demanded that the goalkeeper reject Juventus.
Although FC Barcelona will also be in hiding in relation to Donnarumma, should Marc-Andre ter Stegen want to visit other places. Paris Saint-Germain has always cared about the so-called successor of Gianluigi Buffon, just like Manchester United.
