Chelsea to offer £10.5 million-a-season to secure signature of top-class Italian
Reports have claimed that Chelsea are set to offer Gianluigi Donnarumma £10.5 million a season to make the move to London
With Thomas Tuchel interested in adding a new stopper to the squad over the summer transfer window, there was alot of speculation in the media which suggested that Chelsea were very interested in signing Donarumma.
Regarded as one of the finest young stoppers in the game right now, and the man to be the next Gianluigi Buffon, Donnarumma is making a real name for himself in the game and has been in the headlines alot over his future, as he simply could not agree a new contract.
That uncertainty meant that there was an opportunity for Chelsea to wrap up a transfer deal, but that massive £80 million asking price and the fact Donnarumma was not sure whether he wanted to move, meant that Chelsea acquired the brilliant Edouard Mendy instead.
That has not stopped rumours that Chelsea may still be interested in Donnarumma, to add a bit of depth to the side, but it seems like they will once again miss out on the chance to sign the Italian big man.
Reports on Italian media have claimed that Chelsea are now ready to swoop in and offer the Italian a massive £10.5 million a season to get a transfer deal done.
The 21-year-old has made 226 appearances at Milan, with his debut coming at the tender age of 16, but the Italian cannot meet his current wage demands, reportedly
Look, the idea that Chelsea could have signed Donnarumma for an absolute bargain is something that would be seen as a real bargain, so the news that he is about to sign a new contract with the Italians will come as a real blow.
In the next couple of years he will develop and become one of the best, so this was the best chance that Chelsea had of signing the man on the cheap, he will cost close to £100 million in the future
