Juventus offer player in exchange for Donnarumma

Juventus are reportedly planning to step up their interest in Milan goalkeeper Gianluigi Donnarumma, offering Merih Demiral or Daniele Rugani in exchange.

With 19 months left on Donnarumma’s current deal, reports yesterday claimed he was ready to ask for a pay rise at San Siro, despite Milan preferring to spread his €6m salary over a longer period.

That might open the door for Juve, with Gazzetta dello Sport writing how sporting director Fabio Paratici is already laying the foundations for a bid this summer.

The newspaper adds they are willing to offer either Demiral or Rugani as part of a swap deal, the Bianconeri particularly aware of their rivals’ interest in the Turk.

Wojciech Szczesny is presently first choice at Allianz Stadium and is tied to the club until June 2021.
