Donnarumma: Raiola puts renewal negotiations on hold

By Fred Ilondo -

AC Milan wonder kid Gianluigi Donnarumma turned 18th on the 25 of February but the promising Italian goalkeeper has yet to reach an agreement with the Serie A giants over his first pro contract.

His agent Mino Raiola has thrown Donnarumma’s future at the San Siro into doubt by claiming that he has yet to meet representatives of the new board to discuss a new deal for his client.

“I can’t predict the future, I don’t know what will happen next. We’ve decided not to talk about the future of Donnarumma but I haven’t spoken with any representative of the new board yet.

“To me, AC Milan is still represented by Galliani. I can’t really talk about new owners because I don’t know them.” Raiola said.

“Donnarumma does his job and I do mine. I must think about his future then he has the last word. Of course I must consider which club AC Milan will become. He doesn’t deserve a great AC Milan, Donnarumma deserves a big club. My job is not being the fan of a club.”

On the other hand, current CEO, Adriano Galliani hinted at a possible renewal on Donnarumma’s birthday party by mentioning giving ‘Gigio’ a pen as a birthday gift. Both AC Milan and their star seem keen to a renewal but the future of the club will play a determinant part at the outcome of the situation.
