Gigio Donnarumma


Hakan Calhanoglu

have departed the club for nothing and since the 24-year-old’s contract will reach its end in a year, the Diavoli are trying to convince him to sign a new contract.

but the Blues have paid €40m for the midfielder in 2020 and do not plan to sell him cheap after only one season.

The Morocco international’s €6m-a-year salary is also a problem for the Serie A giants, who are considering signing the ex-Ajax man on a loan deal that includes an option to buy.

Ziyech’s alternative for Milan is Real Madrid’s

Dani Ceballos
