Gigio Donnarumma’s contract will expire at the end of the season and Milan are yet to reach an agreement with his agent, Mino Raiola. There is cause for concern, therefore, as time is ticking for the Rossoneri.
The goalkeeper is undeniable a very important player for Milan as he’s been the starter since he made his debut back in 2016. At the age of 22, he still has room for improvement and he’s already one of the best in the world.
It’s far from ideal, therefore, that his contract will expire in the summer and the Rossoneri are hoping that they can find a solution soon. Speaking to Sky Italia, as cited by MilanNews, journalist Peppe Di Stefano shared his thoughts on the matter.
“The feeling is that the Milan world is pretending that Donnarumma’s contract isn’t about to expire. He’s already a part of the club’s history. He has sensational numbers and his attachment to Milan is strong.
“The Rossoneri absolutely want to continue with Donnarumma and they are also willing to agree on a shorter renewal than five years. In 2 years, football can restart and Milan’s project can grow further and the economic strength could be different. Milan don’t want and cannot be without Donnarumma,” he stated.
It remains to be seen if Paolo Maldini can reach an agreement with Raiola, who is notoriously hard to negotiate with and we have already seen this. Hopefully, though, it will all work out in the end.
