AC Milan are determined not to lose Gianluigi Donnarumma but his agent Mino Raiola continues to play hard ball, according to a report.
Calciomercato.com writes that Raiola is aiming for a ‘mega renewal’ with a double-digit salary while the Rossoneri have offered a five-year contract worth €7.5million net per season, therefore a commitment of €75m gross for the club over the next five years.
Considering the enormous economic difficulties that the Covid emergency has created, this is a sizeable offer. The renewal therefore seems to worry everyone except the player, who continues to perform exceptionally on the field.
Raiola did not accept Milan’s proposal because his intention is to renew only for another two seasons – therefore until 2023. It would be a bridge agreement to then evaluate the market when the effects of Covid will be overcome, and with the possibility of securing an even higher salary.
Milan are aware that an agreement of this type would be forced to negotiate again with Raiola next season which is not ideal considering the various top European clubs that have already received information on the situation.
The management are not convinced by the idea of a two-year mini renewal and no news has arrived despite the frequent contacts in recent weeks. Donnarumma has indicated his absolute priority in Milan but this is not enough in a complex negotiation, but the parties will in fact meet again soon.
Frederic Massara and Paolo Maldini hope to snatch at least a three-year agreement but the road is still rough.
