CorSport: Milan confident of securing Donnarumma renewal – three options on the table

By Oliver Fisher -

In the next few days there will be a meeting between Milan and Mino Raiola to discuss the contract renewal of Gianluigi Donnarumma, a report claims.

According to il Corriere dello Sport (via MilanLive), Milan understand the importance of Donnarumma and intends to make an economic effort to keep him beyond his current deal, which expires in 2021.

CEO Ivan Gazidis is ready to put more solutions on the table to reach an agreement, and the fact that Donnarumma has already expressed his willingness to stay helps the Rossoneri in discussions.

Gazidis may propose a one or two-year renewal while maintaining the current engagement of €6million net per year – a move that removes the risk of losing him on a free transfer next year and would postpone any talk about a possible sale.

Another option is that of a five-year extension with salary spread out, but Raiola is unlikely to accept any form of pay cut.

Finally, the insertion of a release clause valid in case of non-qualification for the Champions League could also be a tool to convince Raiola. It would mean that if a club offers the predetermined amount, then Donnarumma can leave.

Milan’s owners are hoping that talks with Raiola will be quick and productive, and there is confidence that an agreement can be reached somehow.
