AC Milan are likely to reach an agreement over a renewal for Gianluigi Donnarumma if the same terms can be agreed, a report claims.
The Rossoneri’s prized young shotstopper was once again linked with an exit from the club this summer as a number of outlets claimed Paris Saint-Germain were sniffing around.
However, Donnarumma ended up remaining with Milan and now – with his contract expiring in 2021 – attention has turned to his possible renewal.
On Wednesday, il Corriere dello Sport claimed that Milan are ready to offer the 20-year-old a new deal but on a lower salary that the €6m-a-year he currently earns.
However, Thursday’s edition of La Gazzetta dello Sport – as cited by MilanNews – offers a slightly different angle by stating that fresh terms will be agreed if Donnarumma and agent Mino Raiola agree to continue at a salary of €6m.
However, the report adds it is likely that Raiola will understandably ask for an increase to convince his client to sign, though the player’s will could be key in negotiations.
