CM.it: Milan and Donnarumma reach agreement as Maldini decides to gamble on CL clause

By Oliver Fisher -

AC Milan are closing in on being able to announce the renewal of Gianluigi Donnarumma with the management having made a sacrifice.

According to Calciomercato.it, the dialogue has been ongoing for weeks as Milan obviously do not want to risk losing a generational talent on a free transfer. For this reason, they are speeding up the talks for the renewal of the 21-year-old and there is the basis of an agreement between the parties.

For Donnarumma a four-year extension is ready at €7million net per season, while for his brother Antonio a three-year deal at €850k per year is on the table.

The most difficult obstacle to overcome is the Champions League clause, but after months of back and forth Paolo Maldini seems inclined to accept it. This is a request from the player’s entourage and involved Donnarumma being able “free himself” at a figure of €35-40m in the event the Rossoneri do not qualify for the next Champions League.

Perhaps because of the nine-point advantage over fifth place Maldini thinks he has some more security and is ready to take risks.
