Gianluigi Donnarumma is now a well-known goalkeeper throughout Europe. He has been climbing up the ranks in Italy ever since joining AC Milan. He is growing at the club and has shown a lot of potential. The youngster almost joined Inter, rivals of his current club.
While Donnarumma was still in Naples, some top clubs were up for his signature. The president of his old club confirmed that the Inter deal was almost done.
“We defined his move to Inter with the manager of the youth teams Samaden, who came to Castellammare di Stabia to talk with me and the father of the young goalkeeper. I went to the city of Milan together with his parents and Gigio was also enrolled in a school there: the deal was really done, but when we returned to Castellammare, Milan demonstrated to be more concrete because the cousin of Mino Raiola, Enzo, told Galliani that he couldn’t miss this opportunity. In a few hours, Gigio became a Rossonero “.
Could things have gone differently if he moved to the Nerazzuri? The 19-year-old is the starting goalkeeper in the Italian National Team. He is a great player and has already made a name for himself in Italy. Though, some things could have been different.
There are things Donnarumma would like to forget. He wants to prove himself once again to the world that he has what it takes. A lot of pressure is put on him as big things are expected.
