Will £80 million Italian International be a good Chelsea signing after Maldini clears way for FREE deal to happen?
Paolo Maldini has told the likes of Chelsea that they have paused contract talks with stopper Gianluigi Donnarumma, but would he be a good signing for the club?
Regarded as one of the finest young stoppers in world football right now, Donnarumma has fully-established himself over in Italy as a man that has the ability to go on and become one of the best goal-keepers ever to grace the game.
However, there has been alot of rumours in the media over the past few months about his future, as he is out of contract at the end of the season and is free to leave Milan and join Chelsea, or anybody else who is interested in a potential deal.
But with many Milan fans hoping a deal can be struck sooner rather than later, Maldini has now admitted that any contract talks for his top players will be put on hold until the end of the season, giving a clear indication that Donnarumma is leaving the club
“It is important to reiterate firmly that no one outside Milan can decide who plays and who renews,” the 52-year-old told ANSA. “Choices regarding the pitch are down to the coach, while the club is in charge of contractual issues.
“From this moment, every single negotiations for new contract extension is on hold until the end of the season so that the team can focus on the pitch. Meantime, we’ll continue to protect our players as we have always done.”
Look, we are massive fans of the young Italian and firmly believe he could add 20 points to Chelsea next season, so if he is on his way out of Milan, Chelsea should make sure that they are the ones to complete a deal.
There are many players that Chelsea could sign in the transfer market, but Donnarumma is a player that would be seen as a great investment by the club guys, there is no doubt about that
