AC Milan are ready to sit down with Gianluigi Donnarumma and Mino Raiola to discuss a renewal, according to a report.
Donnarumma’s current deal expires in 2021, and il Corriere dello Sport recently reported that Milan have no intention of letting that run into the final year.
Milan director Zvonomir Boban stated that the 20-year-old has become a ‘leader’ in the dressing room despite his young age, hinting that the club are eager to keep him around.
Calciomercato.com claimed earlier in the week that talks over a new contract will take place ‘in the coming weeks’, but that Milan have no intention of raising his €6m-a-year salary, with PSG once again lurking.
Friday’s edition of il Corriere della Sera – as cited by MilanNews – claim that the negotiations will start from a ‘very important base’ in that ‘all parties involved wish to continue the marriage together’.
There is however one big obstacle in the salary that Donnarumma currently earns, and it will be necessary to find an agreement within parameters that Elliott Management deem acceptable, the report concludes.
