AC Milan have reached an agreement with Gianluigi Donnarumma over an extension of his current contract, according to a report from Spain.
A new crossroads has emerged regarding Donnarumma’s future just as it did in 2017 as his current deal expires in 2021, meaning a renewal must be agreed before next season or Milan must consider selling the 21-year-old to avoid the risk of losing him on a free next year.
We revealed via our correspondent Vito Angele that the road is open for Milan to agree a new deal with Donnarumma, possibly a five-year contract on a slightly lower salary than his current amount.
However a number of outlets have also reported that the Italy international could instead sign a short-term deal to push the discussion over his long-term future further down the line, when the economy of football will be more stable after the COVID-19 crisis.
Nonetheless, dubious Spanish transfer outlet TodoFichajes claim that Milan have reached a total agreement with Donnarumma on an extension which would be for two more seasons, until 30 June 2023.
Milan have agreed to maintain the fixed part of its salary (€6m-a-year) increasing the bonuses available, and Donnarumma has decided to continue his adventure with the Rossoneri, which will lead him to be one of the three highest paid players in Serie A.
