Paul Pogba & Gianluigi Donnarumma
The link between Paul Pogba and Gianluigi Donnarumma is rather obvious.
Both the Man United and AC Milan stars share the same agent: Mino Raiola.
One of the most powerful and richest men in football, Raiola made a fortune twelve months ago when Pogba made a world record transfer from Juventus to Man United, while he also took Zlatan Ibrahimovic and Henrikh Mkhitaryan to Old Trafford.
This summer Raiola is busy with Donnarumma, who has made it crystal clear he wants to leave AC Milan.
What’s the story?
Going into last week, it looked likely that Gianluigi Donnarumma would come to a new agreement with AC Milan, as he has just one year left on his current deal at the San Siro.
AC Milan held a meeting with super agent Mino Raiola and no agreement was found, with 18-year-old Donnarumma now looking like one of the most attractive players on the market.
Real Madrid and Juventus are the favourites to sign the successor to Gianluigi Buffon. Manchester United, a regular client of Mino Raiola, have also been linked with Donnarumma.
Donnarumma was in action on Sunday at the under-21 European Championships, where local AC Milan fans abused him.
Throwing cash on the pitch, the Azzurri keeper was mocked as “Dollarumma”.
That’s provoked Pogba to defend the teenage Italian stopper on social media on Monday.
Donnarumma soon best in the 🌎 deserves only respect for all he’s done until now 👊🏾 #forzaGigi
