AC Milan and Gianluigi Donnarumma both have the idea of continuing their adventure together with talks over a new deal set to take place, a report claims.
The dilemma that the Rossoneri face regarding the future of the 21-year-old has been well documented. His deal runs until 2021, meaning the club must either agree a renewal before next season or consider selling so as to avoid the risk of losing a prized asset on a free transfer next year.
There has been good news filtering regarding the situation over the last few weeks, with several reputable sources reporting that Milan are optimistic about a positive conclusion to the talks.
According to Calciomercato.com, a crucial week is coming up regarding the future of Donnarumma, with agent Mino Raiola waiting for a phone call from the club’s management albeit without much haste.
The long-awaited face-to-face to set up Gigio’s renewal is coming as Milan want to keep the 21-year-old and make him a key pillar of their future project.
From an economic point of view, the idea is to keep his current €6m-a-year salary – perhaps by inserting performance-related bonuses – and to extend the deadline to 2023. Seven key days begin, and Milan and Donnarumma want to continue together.
