Gigio Donnarumma has been one of Milan’s best players since he arrived on the scene back in 2015, then just 16 years old. However, his contract will expire next summer and the Rossoneri are in a tough spot.
As reported by SportMediaset (via MilanLive), the goalkeeper has presented his first request to renew, via his agent Mino Raiola: €10m per year. This would make him the second-highest salary in Serie A after the unrivalled Cristiano Ronaldo.
It’s an offer that, of course, doesn’t appeal the Milan management who want to lower the wage bill. Donnarumma already earns €6m per year and the highest they would go for the renewal is €7.5m plus bonuses.
The solution, as has been rumoured for a very long time, could be a release clause. Raiola would accept a lower salary if a clause of around €30-40m is included, which most likely would hinge on Champions League qualification.
