AC Milan’s goal remains the renewal of Gianluigi Donnarumma, although the club has started to consider three replacements in case he leaves, according to a source.
According to Tuttosport (via MilanNews), the extension of Gigio remains the top priority, and the Milan leaders would go to every length to persuade him to continue until the bitter end. However, Milan cannot afford to be idle in the meantime, so the Rossoneri are searching for substitutes for Donnarumma.
There are three hot names at the moment: Lille’s Mike Maignan, Fulham’s Alphonse Areola (who is owned by PSG), and Udinese’s Juan Musso. Maignan costs €12-13 million, but he was also in the hands of Tottenham, who saw him as the successor to Lloris. Areola, who was linked back in 2019 in a swap offer to land Donnarumma, has also returned to the race in the last few hours.
Finally, Musso from Udinese is a choice, but he faces stiff competition from Inter and, most notably, Roma. Other names will undoubtedly emerge in the coming weeks, but Milan hopes it will be just tied because they have revived Donnarumma.
