Perin’s Milan move on hold due to Donnarumma

Mattia Perin

Mattia Perin's potential move from Genoa to AC Milan has been put on hold due to Gianluigi Donnarumma's contract negotiations, according to Perin's agent.

With first-choice goalkeeper Donnarumma's future at Milan in doubt after he turned down the Rossoneri's latest contract offer, Perin seemed to be targeted as a replacement.

However, Donnarumma may yet sign a new deal which is why negotiations with Perin have been stalled for the time being.

“We respect Milan, we thank them for trying to sign Mattia with determination,” Perin's agent Alessandro Lucci told GianlucaDiMarzio.

“But for now, we’ve stopped all possible negotiations. Milan are right to focus on the Donnarumma situation.

“Mattia’s an extraordinary No 1 and what he’s shown to date couldn’t be seen otherwise.

“We’ve talked to Mirabelli, for us, the deal is off at the moment. If, in the next few days, Milan still need us, we’ll sit down with them again.”
