After declaring his intention to stay at AC Milan, goalkeeper Gianluigi Donnarumma will apparently sign a new deal on a lower salary.
Reports on Sunday emerged claiming that Donnarumma has communicated to agent Mino Raiola and the Milan leadership his intention to stay beyond the summer.
Ligue 1 giants Paris Saint-Germain had been touted as a potential destination for Donnarumma, with reports last month suggesting that they had opened talks over a possible swap deal.
Now, a report from La Gazzetta dello Sport reaffirms the earlier reports by stating the 20-year-old has told Elliott Management that he is committed to the Rossoneri.
Despite previously being first on the list of ‘sellable’ players, Donnarumma’s will is to remain at San Siro, however a new deal is in the pipeline.
The Milan Primavera product is now expected to sign a new contract with a ‘much lower’ salary than his current €6m-a-year.
The paper reports that a possible plan could be to keep the total value of the deal extend the deal until 2022, thus spreading the financial commitment over a greater number of years.
