Donnarumma to PSG for Areola and €20m?

Milan are in negotiations for a goalkeeper exchange, sending Gianluigi Donnarumma to PSG for Alphonse Areola and €20m, claim Sky Sport Italia and Eurosport.

According to Gianluca Di Marzio and Eurosport France this evening, the talks are in progress and the Rossoneri need to raise funds by June 30 to balance the books.

Donnarumma is the natural option to move on, as he came up through their youth academy and his sale would therefore qualify as pure profit.

Milan consider the 20-year-old to be worth €50m, a significant drop on the valuation he was given only a few months ago.

That is because his contract is due to expire in 2021 and he has no intention of renewing, nor do the club want to keep him on that salary.

As PSG value Areola at €30m, the deal would bring Milan his replacement and €20m cash.

The talks are aided by the fact Leonardo has just taken over as director of sport at Paris Saint-Germain, having quit Milan earlier this month.

Notably, both Donnarumma and Areola have the same agent: Mino Raiola.
