GdS: Milan’s firm stance, optimism and Juve’s interest – the latest on the Donnarumma saga

By Oliver Fisher -

AC Milan are not willing to raise their offer to Gianluigi Donnarumma despite Mino Raiola’s requests as Juventus watch on in the background.

This morning’s edition of La Gazzetta dello Sport (via MilanNews) writes how in 77 days the Italian goalkeeper could leave on a free transfer and the Bianconeri are ready to seize the opportunity.

Raiola is demanding net salary of €12m per season for Donnarumma, a very high figure considering the delicate financial situation clubs are in due to the pandemic, but Juventus club could make a sacrifice, trying to get close to the required salary.

Donnarumma is attached to Milan – the club that raised him and has always supported him – and for this reason he does not want to leave on a free transfer. However, he would like to have the certainty of playing in the Champions League next season.

The paper adds that no progress has been made in the negotiations for the renewal as the Rossoneri have made their best offer of €8m net per season and the management will not go beyond this figure. At Casa Milan the optimism remains, but as time passes the more time passes the more complicated the situation becomes.
