CorSport: Short-term extension plus a release clause – the latest idea regarding Donnarumma

By Oliver Fisher -

AC Milan could fix the situation regarding Gianluigi Donnarumma’s renewal by agreeing a new deal with a release clause, according to a report.

We reported on Thursday night via our correspondent Vito Angele that the road has opened up for Donnarumma to extend his stay at Milan, and that he could sign a new five-year contract on a slightly lower salary than his current €6m-a-year.

According to il Corriere dello Sport on Friday (via MilanLive), the latest hypothesis is that Donnarumma could in fact sign an extension to ease the pressure regarding the fact his current deal runs out in 2021.

Despite everything, the 21-year-old would like to stay at Milan. Gigio has confessed to friends and acquaintances that his desire is to prolong his time with the Rossoneri, but that he will not take a pay cut.

In the meantime buyers are in short supply due to the global economic crisis, and the offers that begin to filter are not very attractive. That’s why an extension of a couple of years, with the inclusion of a release clause, could be a perfect solution.

That would mean that Milan can continue to count on a key plyer and push the issue of a long-term contract down the line, while Donnarumma would have a safe way out for if the Elliott project did not take off.
