Gigio Donnarumma’s future at AC Milan is highly uncertain. The goalkeeper’s contract will expire in June 2021, and as Mino Raiola and the club have different strategies on the matter, a departure is looking more and more likely.
In the summer, the renewal will have to be agreed on, or Milan will have to sell their star. The Rossoneri can’t afford to lose a player like Donnarumma for free in 2021. In fact, it would be a total disaster for their reputation.
Succeeding in extending the contract would be a good sign for the project, but in the event of a sale, the budgetary effects would be very positive. High capital gain and high savings on the wage bill.
As reported by today’s edition of Corriere Dello Sport (via Milanlive.it), Milan would like to extend the deal with more contained figures than the current ones. Donnarumma earns €6m per year and he will hardly accept a pay cut.
Therefore, the San Siro side will probably have to sell the youngster, who is doing well but also wants to compete with the best in the Champions League. Several teams are interested and a good offer could be enough for Milan.
Min Raiola, on the other hand, would be keen on letting his client stay at the Rossoneri until 2021. In other words, until his contract runs out, thus being able to join who he wants for free.
This is a hypothesis that obviously can’t be taken into by Milan. The economic damage would be enormous. Furthermore, Donnarumma himself would never leave Milan in this way, as he loves the club.
