GdS: Milan waiting for an answer from Donnarumma and Raiola – why optimism remains

By Oliver Fisher -

In ninety days, Gianluigi Donnarumma will be free from any contractual obligation and could sign for another club, so the situation must be resolved soon.

According to La Gazzetta dello Sport (via MilanNews), Milan’s offer is €8m net per season which the management consider very rich and adequate to the value of the 22-year-old goalkeeper. The proposal has been on the table of Donnarumma and Raiola for weeks now, but no answers have arrived.

The expiration date is approaching but the player does not want to consider leaving his boyhood club on a free, so in all likelihood Gigio wants to be sure that Milan will participate in the next edition of the Champions League.

Despite this, the question is above all economic. Raiola asks for €10m per season for his client and a relatively low release clause to allow him to find an alternative solution more easily in the coming months if something falls apart.

Donnarumma’s agent continues to buy time, perhaps in the hope that a top club will knock on his door, but no elite clubs need a goalkeeper at the moment. Milan, therefore, appears to be the only viable path and optimism still prevails over the outcome of the negotiations.
