PSG prepare €50m for Donnarumma

Paris Saint-Germain are reportedly preparing a €50m bid for Gianluigi Donnarumma, if Milan fail to qualify for the Champions League.

According to newspaper La Repubblica, if the Rossoneri finish outside the top four in Serie A, they will be forced into selling off their most prized asset to help fall in line with Financial Fair Play rules.

Morata's lament

As Alvaro Morata faces his former club Juventus, Football Italia’s Chief Football Correspondent Richard Hall wonders what the Spaniard could've achieved.

“Nearly all men can stand adversity, but if you want to test a man’s character, give him power”. This is a quote Alvaro Morata would be able to relate to, only the double interpretation of his career it offers up would trouble him. A player with height, speed, power, technique and ultimately supreme ability, there is a question as to why he is seen to have underachieved. How can this be when he has played for Real Madrid, Juventus, Chelsea and now Atletico Madrid?
