If you weren’t already aware of it, Milan are currently awaiting a decision from the CFCB; one likely to define their summer transfer window.
Failing to comply with FFP regulations, the Serie A side will soon find out whether or not they’ll face a transfer ban, a cap on how much they’re allowed to spend or a reduction of their squad size for the Europa League next year.
Considering they are currently looking around for a new striker, with Chelsea’s Alvaro Morata high on their list, the first two could prove very problematic, but Corriere dello Sport reckon Milan might have the solution to their problem in house: Gianluigi Donnarumma.
For about a year now, Mino Raiola has been trying to get his young protégé a move away from San Siro, and with Thibaut Courtois constantly being close to a move to Spain, the young Italian goalkeeper could be the one to replace him at Stamford Bridge.
This idea has emerged after Milan failed to receive the offers they were expecting for Donnarumma (they wanted €70m), having already secured the services of Pepe Reina from Napoli for next season, and with Gennaro Gattuso really keen on the Morata idea, a swap could be on the cards.
The Alexis Sanchez-Henrikh Mkhitaryan deal in January proves these kind of transfers can still happen if everyone finds themselves in them, but that doesn’t mean it’ll happen between Chelsea and Milan.
While the Italian club has thought of it, the details remain very vague and the Blues are yet to hear of this, nor are they interested in doing any business until they have their managerial situation sorted.
Honestly, this is all just pure speculation, and we recommend ignoring it for now.
There’s so many ifs, buts and maybes in it, it’s actually quite painful to read.
