Talks between AC Milan and agent Mino Raiola over the renewal of Gianluigi Donnarumma have stopped for now, a report claims.
Donnarumma was once again linked with a departure over the summer as Paris Saint-Germain eyed him as a replacement for Kevin Trapp, who joined Eintracht Frankfurt.
He ended up staying with the Rossoneri though, and il Corriere dello Sport reported last month that Milan now intend to extend his contract, which expires in 2021.
However, Donnarumma currently earns the most out of any Milan player at €6million per year, and the paper revealed that Milan have no intention of raising that.
Real Madrid were then linked with a move for Donnarumma to replace the struggling Thibaut Courtois, and La Gazzetta dello Sport on Friday (via MilanNews.it) have offered an update on his future.
They report that the dialogue for the extension of Gigio is ‘a dead track’ at the moment, but that Maldini, Boban and the rest of the leadership would like to resolve everything as soon as possible.
The Rossoneri leaders would like to essentially spread his current deal for three further years until 2024, with a salary lowered to €4m-a-yea, but understandably Raiola is not happy to agree to that.
Donnarumma has been one of Milan’s most consistent players both this season and over the last three years, with Boban even declaring him the club’s current leader.
As a result, the leadership will try to reach an agreement quickly that will satisfy all the parties involved.
