GdS: Donnarumma wants long-term stay but Milan consider offering one-year extension

By Oliver Fisher -

AC Milan could look to push the crossroads regarding Gianluigi Donnarumma’s future a bit further down the line, according to a report.

The dilemma that the Rossoneri face regarding the future of the 21-year-old has been well documented. His deal runs until 2021, meaning the club must either agree a renewal before next season or consider selling so as to avoid the risk of losing a prized asset on a free transfer next year.

According to La Gazzetta dello Sport (via MilanNews), Milan must face the situation as soon as possible and they could propose a temporary fix. The club’s management may offer Gigio a one-year extension before tackling a long-term deal after the 2021 European Championships.

It is hard to say whether the player and Mino Raiola would accept this solution, but it must also be said that at the moment there seems to be no serious suitors for Donnarumma, probably because they would rather try and take a risk regarding a free transfer.

The 21-year-old, for his part, has never hidden his desire to stay at Milan.
