AC Milan and Mino Raiola have reached a stalemate over the renewal of goalkeeper Gianluigi Donnarumma, according to a report.
This morning’s edition of La Gazzetta dello Sport (via MilanLive) reports that the saga regarding Donnarumma’s extension seems to be no closer to resolution as the negotiation between Milan and Raiola is experiencing a stalemate. At the moment, there is distance both as regards the figure of Donnarumma’s salary and the duration of the new contract.
The paper outlines that Raiola is pushing for an agreement valid only until June 2022 or at the latest until June 2023 which gives the opportunity to evaluate things again in the short term, but Milan obviously want to lock Gigio down for longer and not have to repeat the saga in a year or two.
Milan are willing to make an economic effort to keep the Italy international, who already earns a very high salary of €6m net per season, but are not going to concede to every one of Raiola’s requests. Donnarumma’s new contract will have to last longer than what it is being suggested, and will also be up to the player to speak with his agent to prevent this negotiation from reaching a ‘breaking point’.
