AC Milan are anxious about sitting down with agent Mino Raiola to discuss the renewal of goalkeeper Gianluigi Donnarumma, a report claims.
The 20-year-old has been nothing short of exceptional for the Rossoneri this season and is virtually the first name on the team sheet when fit, alongside captain Alessio Romagnoli.
Calciomercato.com reported recently that a lot will depend on the ability of Milan to launch a truly ambitious and competitive project, the report claims, something which Raiola warned Elliott Management before the game against Brescia.
According to Friday’s edition of La Gazzetta dello Sport – as cited by MilanNews.it – Donnarumma’s contract is a ‘very delicate issue; that will be addressed in the next few weeks.
The paper notes that Raiola has not hesitated to criticise Elliott’s project and the fear is that, in his head, there is no idea of going further than Gigio’s current deal, which expires in 2021.
Milan, with Financial Fair Play at the door, cannot afford to offer a new contract worth €6million per season, just as it is unrealistic to think that Gigio and his entourage would accept a pay cut.
At this point, without the renewal, in the summer the parties could arrive at a solution that satisfies everyone – a sale of around €50million which would allow the club to make a huge capital gain.
Il Corriere della Sera recently reported that Real Madrid are leading Juventus and PSG for Donnarumma, who is valued around the €70million mark.
