AC Milan technical director Paulo Maldini has revealed that all negotiations are frozen until the summer, including talks with the Juventus goal. Gianluigi Donnarumma.
The goalkeeper has been heavily linked with the move to Turin this summer, with his current club unable to block such a change as the player’s contract expires in the coming months.
AC Milan had been working on a new deal that would keep him linked with the club beyond the upcoming window, but following the Ultras’ supposed confrontation with the player to demand he sign the contract or qu ‘he be removed from the squad, the club took the drastic step of freezing all ongoing negotiations.
“It is important to reaffirm strongly that no one outside of Milan can decide who plays and who renews,” Maldini told ANSA (via Milan News Certain choices belong to the coach for the field and to the club for contractual matters. Each renewal negotiation is now frozen until the end of the season, to allow the team to focus solely on the league. Until then, we will continue to protect our players as we always have. “
“The Milan fans, so far exemplary in supporting the team, must understand that at the moment, the players need serenity and concentration to face the next matches which will be decisive. What happened on Saturday morning with Donnarumma does not help. I reiterate the absolute professionalism of all our players, even those who are about to expire, who have never lacked dedication to the cause and commitment.
It could help our pursuit of the young star goalkeeper, especially given Milan’s current form, which has seen him drop freely from title favorites to Champions League prospects, with the strong possibility of missing the CL for the next season could play a role in his decision. .
Does this scenario give even more spice to Sunday’s clash between us and Milan?
