AC Milan goalkeeper Gianluigi Donnarumma has told his team-mates that his wish is to remain at the club and sign a new deal.
That is according ccording to what reported by SportMediaset (via MilanNews), who confirm that the idea of Donnarumma signing a new deal with Milan is becoming an increasingly concrete possibility.
There are still unknowns, but the will of both sides seems to be moving in the direction of continuing their relationship together. It suits both Milan and Donnarumma: the Rossoneri would avoid the fear of losing the goalkeeper for nothing in 13 months, and also to Gigio himself, who has communicated to some of his team-mates that he wishes to stay.
There are doubts meanwhile regarding possible destinations for the 21-year-old. Juventus, PSG and Real Madrid – the clubs monitoring the situation – will have to deal with the losses caused by the Coronavirus emergency and will not invest the €50million+ required. Milan have also set a clear stance: no counterparts, only cash.
The knot for the renewal remains his €6m-a-year salary, but Elliott may be willing to make an exception and give him a one or even two-year extension to push the crossroads further down the line.
Of course, Mino Raiola will also have a say in all of this, as he continues to be skeptical about the Elliott fund, but with the possible revolution led by Ralf Rangnick the Italian-Dutch agent could change his mind.
Furthermore, the next season will be the one that will lead up to the European Championships. For Donnarumma, it would be better to stay in Milan to continue playing in an environment that he knows well.
