Gianluigi Donnarumma is the starting goalkeeper for Paris Saint-Germain. The 24-year-old’s contract with the capital club is until 2026, but could the French giants look for an alternative?
While Donnarumma has a UEFA Euro in his trophy cabinet, there are warts in his game, such as playing the ball at his feet. Anyone needing proof can rewatch the second leg against Real Madrid in the UEFA Champions League knockout stage in 2022.
Could sporting advisor Luis Campos and manager Luis Enrique go after another goalkeeper and sell the Italian shot-stopper to a Serie A club such as Juventus? The prospect of PSG seeking an alternative has AC Milan wanting to extend Mike Maignan.
According to Calciomercato, AC Milan want Maignan to sign a new contract amid interest from Chelsea and PSG. The 28-year-old, who replaced Donnarumma, is also under contract until 2026.

Despite having leverage in the contract length, it seems as though the Italian side is ready to commit to the French long-term. Will it be enough for the former Lille OSC goalkeeper to stay at the San Siro? Only he knows.
