“Donnarumma? I firmly believe that there is an attempt by Juventus.”

The MilanNews.it editorial team interviewed the journalist Luca Pagni to discuss some topics relating to AC Milan news. With the colleague from Repubblica we talked about the renewals of Donnarumma and Calhanoglu, but also about Romagnoli and the market rumors about Ilicic. Here are his words.

Above all, the Donnarumma case plays a major role. What is going on?
“I firmly believe that there is an attempt by Juventus. It is true that the Bianconeri have some problems from a financial point of view, some debt, but – as I understand – they could sacrifice Szczesny, who could have a good market in leagues like the Premier. The attempt is there and it is normal: we are talking about a very strong, young player, goalkeeper of the national team. And he can be taken for free, obviously paying a very high salary, which is what Raiola wants. Donnarumma, three months old by the deadline, he has not signed yet, so anyone can join in. If we weren’t in time of a pandemic, an auction would have been triggered.

Is Raiola’s strategy to wait?
“Waiting becomes a problem. I think the games are played now, I don’t think we can place it at the last moment. My feeling is bad, very bad: we keep saying that the player said to Raiola” I want to stay here, you see how. ”Ok, but he does not say it publicly: this could have sanctioned the end of the soap opera, and in that case the problem would have become all of Raiola’s. We all know the relationship that the agent has with the Donnarumma family. it is also complicated by the fact that there is another cross case … “.

“That of Romagnoli. He is no longer the owner, this is evident, and probably will not accept it. He still has a year on his contract, so you can look for a solution that will please everyone. For Milan, having already paid for it, all amortized, it would be an important financial income. In my opinion, Romagnoli would be wrong: with the team in the Champions League I don’t think he would play little “.

How would Milan come out, from the point of view of the image, if they were to lose Gigio?
“I think it would be more of a problem for Donnarumma than for Milan. As a fan, the worry would be to lose a boy who comes from the youth teams, a symbol, a potential flag of the club: they were wrong not to make him captain, it would have been a great sign . But he would lose it. Because the goalkeeper is fine, but in the Champions League you pass the rounds if you have the center forward and, above all, great midfielders. I am thinking of Rivera, Rui Costa, Kakà, just to give three examples. Or the great defenders who they hold up and from which the whole team is established: Baresi, Maldini, Rosato. When you lose those you have to cry, the goalkeeper makes the save that gives you some points. Donnarumma still cares, it doesn’t rain on this … “.

Going to Juventus would be a “courageous” choice.
“That is why I say that from the point of view of the image he would lose us, because it would become 100% a question of money. Legitimate, for heaven’s sake, everyone is interested. But luckily football, despite the intrusiveness of money and of finance, it still has some elements that matter. At that point Gigio would do the divorce. ”

However, dealing with Raiola is never easy.
“Maldini renewed by signing blank, then it is clear that Galliani had other means and other possibilities. And they were other times. But the behavior was that: I want to stay, period! Paolo did not send the agent”.

From one renewal to another: with Calhanoglu it seems that there is little distance.
“But how long has it been said? I’m a bit skeptical. It may be a tactic of the attorney, so every time he manages to postpone he maybe raises the bar a little. But a lot then goes a lot. tactics of someone who already has some offers from England, otherwise I don’t understand it. I am not a super fan of Calhanoglu, but I know that in the current Milan balance it is important: if he is in shape you win well, as with the Fiorentina. In addition, he should thank Milan, who waited for him to see him at a certain level, which in the first part of the season was good. I too had to change my mind in part. But he is a player who scores two goals a season and in that role, in Europe, I don’t know … I don’t think it’s up to par. ”

Speaking of the role of playmaker: it seems that Milan are looking for Ilicic.
“It surprised me a bit. You notice that Milan are raising the level. They will go to get another couple of young players and I also expect some exits, because at the moment I don’t see many players to lock down, apart from Kessie and Tomori. Ilicic he has great talent. He has these character problems, but he is not the champion who goes crazy after training, in his private life: he has his own problem, personal, but he can be helped. The fact that Milan go to look for players of great quality it comforts me. I asked my colleagues who deal with the transfer market and they say that there was interest, but in this period all the teams who want to organize themselves well are moving. It is a good sign if they ask for a player like that. the only drawback is age. Then when you argue with Gasperini it is mathematical that you leave, this is a great advantage for Milan. ”

So would that be a good solution?
“It’s a choice in view of the Champions League, where the meter changes radically: not only do you have to have a leg, so players like Hernandez, Bennacer and Calabria, but you need great quality. You can win the Champions League even with a” normal “goalkeeper, but you need a Tomori defender and a high level midfield. Ilicic did great things last year in Europe: as mentioned, it’s a sign in the Champions League “.
