This summer, AC Milan parted ways with Hakan Calhanoglu and Gigio Donnarumma. Both were considered key players for the Rossoneri but despite that they have started very well this season.
Paolo Maldini and Ricky Massara acted quickly in the market, especially for the role between the sticks. Mike Maignan was signed for â¬ 13million even before Donnarumma’s exit was fully announced, but it was clear what was to come.
Then, after lengthy negotiations with Real Madrid, they managed to extend Brahim Diaz’s loan for two years and also included a buyout clause. There is a buyout in favor of the Spanish side, but the conditions are still good.
Speaking at the press conference yesterday, Atalanta manager Gian Piero Gasperini was asked about the loss of Donnarumma. He made it clear that Milan have shown their strengths to be able to replace the youngster.
âThere are a lot of good goalies, but that also applies to other roles. Some players deemed decisive, who then left, have been replaced. Milan, like other teams, has shown that he knows how to sell and strengthen his team, âhe said, as quoted by Milan News.
