AC Milan Stopper Donnarumma shortlisted as Keylor Navas successor as Real Madrid drop interest in De Gea
Madrid Goalkeeper Donnarumma The 18-year-old Italian goalkeeper is out of contract next year 2018 and Los Blancos are keeping a close eye, but will stick with the Costa Rican for now.
Madrid have shortlisted AC Milan shot-stopper Gianluigi Donnarumma as a possible replacement for Keylor Navas next season, but they are keeping faith with the Costa Rican for now and have also ended their interested in signing Manchester United’s David De Gea.
Madrid Goalkeeper Donnarumma keylor came under fire from the Madrid media following a number of mistakes earlier on in the season and the club were set on signing a replacement in the summer as their transfer ban was reduced to six months last january.
Costa Rican international ended the campaign in fine form, made a stunning saves in ucl champions league finall win over Juventus.
Navas is a popular player in the dressing room at Real Madrid and he has received support from some of his team-mates, most from captain Sergio Ramos, with some of them reportedly asking the club to keep faith in the 30-year-old stopper.
Real Madrid have wanted to sign De Gea for several seasons and almost sent Navas to Manchester United as part of the planned transfer in 2015 summer, but the paperwork did not go through in last time and the Spain goalkeeper ended up signing a new long-term contract at United.
A move for De Gea now would cost somewhere in the region of €70 million as Manchester United have no need to sell and the player is also happy in Manchester. Madrid have other priorities in the transfer market anyway, with Monaco’s in-demand striker Kylian Mbappe their top target this summer transfer window.
In Next summer, Madrid could see a move for Milan’s Donnarumma, who is out of contract in 2018 and currently stalling on a new deal due to the demands of his agent, Mino Raiola.
Madrid Goalkeeper Donnarumma Donnarruma has been offered €4.5m per year to stay, which would make him better paid than most goalkeepers in Europe including Gianluigi Buffon, but Raiola – whose cousin Vincenzo is one of the player’s best friends – wants Milan to prove their project will be competitive and, above all, that the club hand his client a relatively low release clause in the region of €50million.
Madrid Goalkeeper Donnarumma AC Milan have insisted that they see Donnarumma as a cornerstone of their new project after the recent takeover, but will not allow the player’s contract to run down and he will be sold this summer unless an agreement can be reached.
Real Madrid are watching developments closely and see the Italian as a potential number one for the future at the Santiago Bernabeu. However, president Florentino Perez prefers to sign stars when they are the finished article and Los Blancos’ status as Europe’s best club means they have no need to risk an 18-year-old in goal at this stage – especially with Keylor Navas back on form.
A move to Madid could happen in future and Real Madrid are one of the few clubs – along with United – that Donnarumma would consider. At the moment, however, the player should still reach an agreement to stay at San Siro beyond next summer and there looks set to be no new goalkeeper arrival at the Bernabeu this summer, either.
