The strategy that AC Milan’s management have taken regarding Gianluigi Donnarumma’s renewal could be an indication of what is to come.
According to MilanNews, the fact that Milan will now not have a player who is paid twice as much as the others compared to the maximum allocated salary ceiling of around €4m net per season means that the club and the technical area can now act differently, both on the market and with other renewal situations.
This extends to the future of Franck Kessie too, as his contract expires in June 2022 and his future must be resolved sooner rather than later for peace of mind. The President has been the protagonist of an amazing year and has always been one of the most consistent even in the years of instability.
He wants to stay at Milan, but asks for his current value to be recognised with a request for €5m net per season to renew. Well, now Milan could meet that figure with greater serenity of mind knowing that it is not as high as Donnarumma’s salary would have been.
