Report: Spurs could sign Gianluigi Donnarumma if Antonio Conte takes over
According to reports in Italy today, Spurs could well sign Gianluigi Donnarumma if Antonio Conte takes over as manager this summer.
The Italian stopper is only 22 but he has already played over 250 times for AC Milan, as well as getting 25 caps for Italy.
Donnarummua’s future is the subject of plenty of speculation. He is available on a free this summer, sparking quite the scramble for his signature in Europe.
And according to Tuttosport, Spurs could well make their move for Donnarumma if Conte comes in as manager. The report states that if Conte and sidekick, Fabio Paratici, come to Spurs, then talk of Donnarumma following should ‘not be excluded’.
Signing Donnarumma for nothing would be quite the coup. Spurs are said to be on the lookout for a goalkeeper anyway. Hugo Lloris is well into his 30s now, too.
Further, Lloris is also being monitored by Jose Mourinho, per the same report from Tutto.
Talks between Conte and Spurs are said to be ongoing. As covered by TBR, Conte’s demands on which staff he brings is said to be causing an issue.
Donnarumma to Spurs would be exceptional business
What a bonus this would be for Spurs fans. Not only would they land a coach who just knows how to win. But they’d also get a goalkeeper who could man the sticks for a decade or more.
Donnarumma is one of the very best in the world. He seems to have been around for ages but at just 22, he has so much in the locker.
Indeed, Mino Raiola once claimed the goalkeeper was worth in excess of £150m. And that was before he even got his big break in Milan.
Should Spurs get Conte over the line and Donnarumma follow, then Tottenham supporters will have every right to get excited.
