Chelsea transfer news: Super-agent Raiola contacted about possible £65 million deal
Chelsea have contacted super-agent Mino Raiola about a summer deal for goalkeeper Dianluigi Donnarumma, according to reports.
Frank Lampard is not happy with the performances of current number one Kepa, and there is a lot of transfer speculation in the media suggesting that we will indeed let him part the club at the end of the season and replace him.
That has led to a lot more speculation that Lampard has set his sights on the possible signing of Donnarumma, who is tipped to become one of the best stoppers in the game and the man to take the mantel as the best ever Italian goalkeeper, currently held by great Gianluihi Buffon.
We are willing to pay the massive £65 million it would take to acquire is services in the summer, and it has also been claimed that Milan may actually be willing to let him leave in order to settle their books and freshen up the side.
Now the Sunday Express has come out and claimed that we have made contact with the super-agent ahead of the summer window and are reportedly ready to meet the massive £55 million asking price that Milan have placed om the Italians head.
Look, if we do intend to buy a new stopper then they probably need to buy one that is already experienced enough at the very top of the game. Donnarumma is a brilliant young stopper, but he has time to develop and turn into one of the best, we can wait to try and get a deal done.
Surely there are better alternatives out there for us?
