CM: New hypothesis emerges regarding Milan star as Man Utd, Real Madrid baulk at price tag

By Oliver Fisher -

An opening has appeared for Milan to secure the renewal of goalkeeper Gianluigi Donnarumma despite interest from abroad, 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.

According to a report from Calciomercato.com though, the chances of him leaving Milan in the summer are getting smaller and smaller. The long-awaited meeting between the parties has not yet happened, but soon it will.

PSG, Real Madrid and Manchester United are all interested in the Italy international, the report claims, but they seem unwilling to offer the €40-50million it would take to sign him this summer.

For this reason, the most viable option, to date, is that Donnarumma stays with Milan, negotiating a new deal. Milan knows that in a year, with the European Championships, Gigio’s value could return to very high levels.

The new option that could be suggested by the club and Raiola would be to renew it at same figures as today (€6million per year) but with a shorter duration, extending by one or two years.

It is an option not the most appreciated by the player, it must be said, who would prefer a very long renewal to bind with all his heart to Milan of the present and the future.
