CorSport: Milan to offer Donnarumma new deal on lower salary

By Oliver Fisher -

AC Milan are set to make their first offer to Mino Raiola for the renewal of Gianluigi Donnarumma, according to the latest reports.

The goalkeeper was once again linked with a move away from the Rossoneri over the summer as Paris Saint-Germain eyed a replacement for Kevin Trapp.

 La Gazzetta dello Sport even went as far as to say Milan were not totally against selling Donnarumma as long as their valuation was met.

The same outlet – as cited by Calciomercato – revealed on Tuesday, Donnarumma currently earns the most out of any Milan player at €6million per year.

According to il Corriere dello Sport on Wednesday, Milan have a plan to extend the 20-year-old’s contract, which expires at the end of next season.

The Rossoneri hierarchy are not keen on letting Donnarumma enter the final year of his deal or be forced into selling him for a low figure, so his renewal is a matter of urgency.

Milan would like Donnarumma to pen an extension for €5m-a-year and subsequently take a pay cut, and they believe the player’s desire to stay at the club can help them in negotiations.
