GdS: Renewal talks accelerated as PSG plot fresh Donnarumma bid

By Oliver Fisher -

Paris Saint-Germain are ready to go back in for AC Milan goalkeeper Gianluigi Donnarumma in January, a report claims.

Donnarumma was heavily linked with a summer exit as PSG once again circled; the Ligue 1 side seeking a replacement for Kevin Trapp and a new number one.

La Gazzetta dello Sport (via MilanNews) even published a report saying that the Rossoneri are not totally against selling Donnarumma as long as their valuation was met.

Despite this Gigio ended up remaining and PSG signed Keylor Navas from Real Madrid, and a lot of the talk has now moved to the renewal of the 20-year-old.

On Wednesday il Corriere dello Sport stated that Milan plan to offer Donnarumma a new deal on a reduced salary, with his contract set to expire in 2021 and with the club having no intention of letting that run into the final year.

Now, a report from La Gazzetta dello Sport on Thursday – as cited by MilanNews – suggests that Milan may be rushed into renewal talks.

This is because PSG haven’t given up their search for a long-term number one between the sticks (Navas is 33 years old) and therefore they are ready to go back in for Donnarumma in January.

This will likely accelerate renewal talks with Mino Raiola, which a report on MilanNews stated remains ‘delicate’ anyway for a number of reasons.

Calciomercato on Tuesday revealed that Donnarumma currently earns the most out of any Milan player at €6million per year.
