Spurs likely to miss out on Gianluigi Donnarumma as Conte deal collapses; Zlatan called him the best in the world
Any hopes Spurs had of signing Gianluigi Donnarumma appear to be at and end after the club’s pursuit of Antonio Conte came to an end last night.
Conte and Spurs reportedly hit a brick wall in their negotiations and multiple sources reported last night that the deal was now off.
It’s another bitter blow for Tottenham and Daniel Levy. The club are desperately seeking a replacement for Jose Mourinho. But, as yet, they’ve been unsuccessful in their quest.
Losing out on Conte is a big blow for the club. The Italian has won five titles in the last seven years. That sort of success would have been welcomed in North London by Spurs fans.
Not only that, but with no Conte, it also seems the club will miss out on signing Gianluigi Donnarumma. As covered by TBR yesterday, it was suggested by reports in Italy that Donnarumma could follow Conte to Spurs.
Donnarumma is set to leave AC Milan on a free. He is rated as one of the very best in the world and has already appeared over 250 times for the Rossoneri.
And in recognition of his talents, Swedish superstar, Zlatan Ibrahimovic told Italian media this week that Donnarumma should have been Milan’s next Maldini.
It seems, then, that Spurs have missed out on quite a player in Donnarumma. If Zlatan approves, then you pretty much know you’re quite the talent.

Given the reports from Italy suggested the stopper might follow Conte, then you’d assume this deal is dead in the water.
And that’s a massive shame for Spurs. Donnarumma would have been quite the statement signing for the club. But it looks like it’s not going to be.
Daniel Levy now needs to act quickly to get his new man in. Whoever it may be. Only then, can signings be realistically considered.
