Gianluigi Donnarumma Insists He Wants To Stay At AC Milan

Gianluigi Donnarumma has insisted that he wants to stay at AC Milan as a host of top clubs keep tabs on his progress.

The 21-year-old has been a target for a number of European clubs since he burst onto the scene with Milan in 2015, but he has remained faithful to his boyhood club.

However, with the Italian’s contract set to expire in the summer of 2021, attention has turned to whether Donnarumma will sign an extended deal with Milan, or seek pastures new.

AC Milan ‘Want To Bring Carlo Ancelotti Back To San Siro’

AC Milan are lining up a sensational return for former boss Carlo Ancelotti, according to reports in Italy.

Ancelotti’s future as Napoli manager is up in the air following a team mutiny against club owner Aurelio De Laurentiis.

The turbulent period at the San Paolo Stadium came after a poor run of results which led to the controversial chairman organising a training camp – something which was rejected by players and the coaching staff.

Reports in Italy are suggesting that Ancelotti has just two games to save his job considering Napoli have not won a league game since mid October.

Milan Ultras Furious With Pioli Hiring

AC Milan Fans

Milan ultras released a statement calling the club “weak and failing yet again to achieve the target it really wanted” after replacing Marco Giampaolo with Stefano Pioli.

Giampaolo was axed this week after just seven games and 111 days in charge, a new club record.

Fans are already furious at the introduction of the ninth different Coach since Max Allegri was sacked in January 2014.

“Time’s up… you have to prove yourselves!” read a statement from the Curva Sud ultras.

“This was the banner we laid out in the stands on Saturday during the Genoa game, representing a population of Milanisti exhausted by the continual embarrassment of this club.

Stefano Pioli AC Milan Manager

AC Milan have confirmed the appointment of former Inter Milan boss Stefano Pioli as their new manager. The 53-year-old has signed a two-year deal with the Serie A side to replace the sacked Marco Giampaolo.

Giampaolo paid the price for Milan’s dreadful start to the season and was dismissed earlier this week after just seven games in charge. It is the shortest reign in the club’s history.

Giampaolo was axed after former president Silvio Berlusconi told Paolo Maldini and Zvonimir Boban they’d made a mistake in hiring the coach.

Inter Continue Domination Of Milan Derby

Romelu Lukaku’s second half header stretched Inter Milan’s perfect start to the Serie A season to four games as they took the derby spoils against AC Milan.

Lukaku headed home a cross from Nicolo Barella in the 78th minute to add to Marcelo Brozovic’s deflected opener.

Lautaro Martinez also had an effort ruled out after a VAR review as Antonio Conte’s side proved good value for a win which takes them back to the top of the table.

Despite their strong domestic start, Inter went into the game under a degree of pressure after needing a late Barella strike to salvage a Champions League draw at home to Slavia Prague in midweek.
