Gianluigi Donnarumma has denied he was put under pressure to sign his most recent AC Milan contract.
The young goalkeeper has been under renewed fire from supporters after a report claimed he felt ‘forced’ to sign a deal worth more than £5m a year.
Milan fans, some of whom threw fake money at him in the summer, unfurled a banner in the San Siro this week that read: ‘psychological violence by giving you €6million-a-season and signing your parasite brother? It’s time to leave… our patience with you is over!’
Gianluigi Donnarumma posted on Instagram on Friday: “It was a bad night, and I didn’t see it coming.
“I never said that I had any moral violence when I signed the contract. Despite everything I look forward and head to the next game. Forza Milan!”
Manchester United, Juventus and Paris Saint-Germain are all reported to have shown at interest in the 18-year-old Donnarumma, who is represented by renowned agent Mino Raiola.
