Agents Union president defends Raiola over Donnarumma AC Milan departure

Agents' Union president Beppe Galli has defended Mino Raiola over Gigio Donnarumma's move to PSG.

The Italy goalkeeper left AC Milan for PSG last summer - angering Rossonero fans in the process.

“People act like it's the fault of the agents, but that's not the case," Galli told CN24.

“For example, how many players have left Udinese as a free agent? Zero. If someone does leave, that's because it's the club that decided not to give a new contract."

Galli also pointed to PSG and their refusal to negotiate with Real Madrid for Kylian Mbappé.

“There's a famous player who received an offer worth €180m and the club didn't want to sell, now he can leave as a free agent. Is that the fault of the club or the agent?

“At this moment, the best thing to do is have a long contract and not leave it so late. Milan did not accept Raiola's proposals for Donnarumma and he left, the same for Calhanoglu. That is not the agent's fault.

“People must be fair and say things as they really are."
