Milan have responded to the Gianluigi Donnarumma controversy, stating “this is not the time for the transfer market”.
The goalkeeper has once again been linked with a move away from the club, with reports that agent Mino Raiola is unhappy with the contract which was signed in the summer.
The Rossoneri frequently respond to the big news stories of the day on their official website, adding their own commentary, and today they’ve addressed the Donnarumma rumours.
“Gigio is an asset for the club, both sportingly [just go back to his excellent saves against Torino and Bologna] and financially,” the club said.
“All this is underlined by a contract until 2021, and strengthened by an always open and positive dialogue between the player and his Coach [Gennaro Gattuso] and the player and the Rossoneri sporting director, [Massimiliano] Mirabelli.
“Having established this, as Gattuso already did yesterday, Milan are now concentrated solely on the pitch, it’s there that the Rossoneri must work to get back on track.
“This isn't the time for the transfer market, but solely and exclusively the pitch.”
