Is it fair to say that Raiola has egg on his face with regard to Donnarumma ? Walked away from Milan but no one wants to pay the 8mm net as wages and the 50m for Raiola ? I hope this means that he looses some clout in the footballing world although that may be too much to hope.
Raiola wants 50m? Donnaruma is a kid so maybe he is doing whatever his agent is advising him to do but surely they need to question some of the things their agent is doing?

If only Barca would show an interest in Phil Jones, we'd have him sold to PSG within days.

Hopefully PSG can feed the struggling Donnarumma family, but bitterness aside it's a peculiar move for me - great keeper and surely one for years, but GK is the last position PSG needs sorted out and it seemed to me Navas was some presence in the dressing room, so why kick him out?

Guess they'll just rotate, Buffon started over Navas in CL didn't he the one season he was there IIRC.

The wages at this club must be ridiculous. This guy, Wijnaldum and previously Herrera. Good players, not great - on massive wages.

They're securing the future, but there was talk of a loan for one year for Donnarumma, not sure how concrete that is. Still a strange piece of business, but if you can get the best young GK in the world, why not?

Fecking PSG. Now was a good time for clubs to take a stand against that fat, grease ball and they bottled it. On top of that they’re paying Donnarumma the wages that were demanded after AC Milan leaked their offer.

PSG beating Juve at their own transfer game. Mainly because they have the bottomless pit of money to stop it coming back to bite them as much.

Duncan Castles broke this story a week or two ago on the Transfer Window podcast. I did post about it in this thread.
He gets a bad rep to be honest. Doesn't get it all right, but often has solid info.

is the sky blue? Obviously. Do you think Herrera has been worth the wages?
No, he hasn't: sub with limited skills, impact and playing time.

A club like PSG - known for its financial strength - will always overpay clubs and players to attract them in an unattractive league.

This story is a very old one. I read this type of articles several times in the last 2-3-4 years.

Very good point. Juve recruited so many free agents: rabiot, kapo, pirlo, etc.

Why would he go to Barcelona where Ter Stegan is the no1 keeper? Surely Juventus would be his best bet. Though riola's £20mil fee for himself is utterly ridiculous.
Moral and priciple aside it's a fecking steal.

If he'd under contract he's easilly worth 50m to the very least.

Paying raiola 20m is the best economically. Just not morally.

The transfer itself to PSG was a scoop for Castles. He doesnt always get it right but on this occasion he deserves the credit. He broke the story.

How you have interpreted it as an old story i have no idea as donnarumma contract is expiring this summer.

Would sell both de Gea and Henderson to get him. And you'd be off cheaper as well. Much better than both.

There are some rumours each year linking him to PSG since December 2017 before he signed his 1st contract with Milan because his agent is Mino Raiola PSG knows very well (Zlatan, Maxwell, Verratti, Bakker, etc.) and because PSG is one the few clubs that can offer crazy wages for any young prospect.

I don't know him so I can't judge of course.
