Di Marzio: Milan to make official contract offer to Donnarumma – difficult negotiations ahead

By Oliver Fisher -

AC Milan are readying an official contract offer to Gianluigi Donnarumma but it will not be an easy negotiation, Gianluca Di Marzio claims.

We reported yesterday via our market expert Vito Angele that Donnarumma’s renewal is a formality. During a meeting between the soon-to-be manager Ralf Rangnick and CEO Ivan Gazidis in December, the German was told that the Rossoneri intend to extend the goalkeeper’s contract.

Donnarumma wants to stay and be important in Rangnick’s project, so now it’s up to Milan and Mino Raiola to find an agreement, also because the manager sees him as a key player.

According to Di Marzio, Elliott have given the go-ahead to the management to try to convince Donnarumma to sign a new deal, and an official offer will be sent soon.

At the moment the proposal is still not clear, but it is certain to be a complicated negotiation given Gigio’s current €6m-a-year salary is deemed too high by the club’s owners.

At the same time however, Mino Raiola does not accept discounts. If it were up to him, there would be a pay rise involved as the player would be committing his future to a team outside the Champions League.
