CorSera: Donnarumma renewal drama begins as Raiola asks for staggeringly low clause

By Oliver Fisher -

The agent of Gianluigi Donnarumma will reportedly demand that AC Milan agree to a low release clause in his client’s new contract.

The situation regarding Donnarumma’s renewal becomes more and more urgent by the day given that his contract expires in June 2021 and therefore has less than 12 months to run.

According to Friday’s edition of il Corriere della Sera (via MilanNews), Raiola is expecting an increase in wages compared to the current €6million net per season that Donnarumma earns.

Milan seem willing to raise his salary to €7-8m, but that is the limit they have set. The most complicated issue to resolve is a potential release clause, as the paper claims that Raiola wants it fixing at no higher than €30m, which would facilitate the farewell of the goalkeeper if he is not convinced by the Rossoneri project.

Qualification for the Champions League is very important of course, but €30m is an absurdly low amount that would surely be instantly triggered by any one of a number of top clubs.
