CM: Maldini optimistic regarding Donnarumma’s renewal – the details of his plan

By Oliver Fisher -

AC Milan have a plan regarding the renewal of goalkeeper Gianluigi Donnarumma as the time approaches when the club has to take action.

As Calciomercato.com notes, Milan are expected to start negotiations soon because Donnarumma has expressed a willingness to renew and his current contract expires in less than 10 months.

There has already been some contact between the club and his agent Mino Raiola but the real negotiation has yet to start. Technical director Paolo Maldini is aiming for an extension until June 2025, and there is the willingness to raise his salary from €6m net per season to €8m plus bonuses.

Milan would like to avoid the insertion of a release clause in the new contract, an important detail that Raiola is aiming for to protect his client, and he wants it set not too high so as not to complicate a possible move to another team.

There have been rumours of interest from Juventus, but there appears to be no attempt by the Bianconeri yet. Maldini hopes to be able to conclude the negotiations for the 21-year-old quickly, and Elliott Management Corporation have given their support to get the deal done.
