Negotiation Deadlock, Donnarumna Suggested Select Madrid or Barca Former AC Milan coach Sinisa Mihajlovic gives advice to young goalkeeper Gianluigi Donnarumma. Mihajlovic asks Donnarumma to hear every offer that comes to him.
After claiming not to renew his contract with AC Milan, Donnarumma directly linked with a big club. Real Madrid, Barcelona and Juventus are the teams that are said to want to recruit Donnarumma.
In fact, Mihajlovic said there was no reason for Donnarumma to say no if Real Madrid or Barcelona came in with a big offer.
“If Real Madrid, Barcelona or other top world clubs offer two or three times what Milan owns, why does Gigio say no?” He said.
Mihajlovic, who now coaches Torino, is the coach who gave Donnarumma debut at Milan at the age of 16 in October 2015. At that time he was convinced the San Siro was the best place for the goalkeeper to develop.
However, he now feels this talented AC Milan goalkeeper, must listen to every approach he receives, especially if more profitable and coming from big clubs.
In addition to the two Spanish clubs, Donnarumma, is also associated with Juventus. The Serie A champion claims to have submitted a proposal worth 50 million Euros with a five-year contract.
