Gianluigi Donnarumma is not one to usually respond to speculation, but difficult times have forced the goalkeeper to resort to twitter and take a stand.
With reports in Italy suggesting that the player was ready to lose his agent Mino Raiola in favour of a stay at Milan, there was wide-spread speculation that the wantaway star would put pen to paper on a new deal with the Rossoneri. However, Donnarumma has made it clear that the Italian-born Dutchman is going nowhere with a tweet.
Donnarumma’s tweet literally translates to “#Donnarumma #Raiola yesterday, today and tomorrow !!” suggesting that the relationship between player and agent is still strong. The prodigy did leave hope for the Milanisti by liking a tweet that pointed out how this was a response to journalists and not the club.
@Eurosport_IT, più che una risposta al Milan, sembra una risposta a quel "giornalismo" che oggi annunciava una loro rottura..— Andreatorrisi.com (@TorrisiAndrea) June 25, 2017
It is still in the air as to whether Gigio will stay at Milan, with club team-mate and fellow Azzurri Manuel Locatelli wishing for him to sign on the dotted line as well.
He is able to deal with everything, is very mature and I hope he makes the best choice. Obviously, I’d love him to stay at Milan.
Hopefully, the midfielder can help swing the decision in favour of the Red and Blacks.
