The AC Milan leadership are still determined to try and lower Gianluigi Donnarumma’s salary by signing a new deal, a report claims.
Donnarumma currently earns the most out of any Milan player at €6million per year, and after a summer of links with a move to Paris Saint-Germain attention has now turned to his renewal.
The 20-year-old has a deal which expires in 2021 and the Rossoneri are keen to avoid letting it run into the final 12 months, but a new contract remains a ‘difficult situation’.
La Gazzetta dello Sport reported on Friday that it is ‘difficult’ to imagine the goalkeeper staying at the club under the current €6m-a-year terms, implying Raiola is pushing for a pay rise.
Now, Calciomercato.com have offered their take on the situation by claiming that Milan want to have Donnarumma’s future resolve by next summer to ‘avoid a delicate situation’.
New meetings are scheduled between the Rossoneri leadership and Gigio’s entourage, with the goal of reaching an agreement as PSG are lurking in the background.
Boban and Maldini will sit at the table with Raiola, hoping that Donnarumma’s desire to stay with Milan will help them to lower his current pay.
Whether the notorious tough negotiator Raiola is willing to accept such a proposal remains another issue altogether…
