Although Gigio Donnarumma has been linked with a return to Milan in the summer, La Gazzetta dello Sport insists that the Rossoneri are unwilling o reunite with the Italy international in 2022-23.
The 23-year-old joined PSG as a free agent from Milan last summer, but his spell in France is not going as expected. Donnarumma has delivered hot and cold performances and hit rock bottom in the second leg of the Champions League Round of 16 against Real Madrid in March when his error sparked the Merengues’ comeback in the second half.
La Gazzetta dello Sport analyses the situation of the Italy international, highlighting how a return to the Stadio Meazza in the summer is highly unlikely. First of all, Milan signed a valuable replacement in Mike Maignan and then most Milan fans no longer want the see the Italy international around Milanello anytime in the future.
A few weeks ago, the pink paper reported that Donnarumma was considering a return to Italy in the summer, but not many clubs can afford his salary. Juventus rely on Wojciech Szczesny and seem to be the only credible destination if Gigio leaves Paris. However, Szczesny is under contract until 2024 and Juventus are not considering investing in a new goalkeeper in the summer. Having left Italy one year ago, Serie A clubs won’t be able to use the Growth Decree, a 50% cut on the player’s gross salary until the summer of 2023.
