You learn best from mistakes. In Milan, they once had a conflict with Mino Raiola, so they did not want to enter new games with the Dutch agent. After arrogant demands with his client Gianluigi Donnarumma, they finished all negotiations on the extension of cooperation, allowing him to leave the club as a free agent after his contract expires.
The auction could begin. Juventus was around the Italian goalkeeper for a long time, then Chelsea joined the race, and recently Barcelona, determined to pick up every free agent on the market (Sergio Aguero, Eric Garcia, soon Memphis Depay).
In the end, neither Turin, nor London, nor the heart of Catalonia - Donnarumma will continue his career in Paris, that is, Paris Saint-Germain. It seems right out of nowhere, although the Parisians have long been warmed up for the services of the Italian national team player.
However, when the French club extended their cooperation with Kaylor Navas at the end of April until 2024, the interest in Donnarumma seemed to have cooled. At the Princes' Park, they seem to have worked in silence and managed to steal another player from their competitors after Georginio Wijnaldum.
The agreement is done and the deal should be concluded in the next 24 hours, reports Gianluca Di Marzio. He did not succeed in Milan, but they finished the job in Paris. Donnarumma will sign a five-year contract worth 12,000,000 euros per season, as much as his agent demanded from the very beginning, and the 22-year-old goalkeeper should undergo a medical test tomorrow at the national team camp, where he is preparing for the European Championship with his teammates.
Another expert for the football market, Fabrizio Romano, points out that Juventus and Barcelona are still interested, but that they have not sent concrete offers yet. If they don't speed up, Paris Saint-Germain will bring another important player without a cent in compensation.
The only question is who will be the first choice of Mauricio Pochettino, considering that Navas has a great season behind him. As for Paris Saint-Germain's business with Raiola, this should not be the end of this summer.
The mentioned Romano announces negotiations on a new loan for Moise Kean and a new contract for Xavi Simons. It seems that PSG wants to create a team that can finally bring the Champions League trophy, although they have already tried to do so last summer, but without success.
