MN: Milan facing ‘chess game’ with Raiola over Donnarumma

By Oliver Fisher -

AC Milan face a ‘chess game’ regarding the future of goalkeeper Gianluigi Donnarumma, according to a report.

Donnarumma once again faced an uncertain future at the club over the summer, with La Gazzetta dello Sport even claiming at one point that the Rossoneri were not totally against selling as long as their valuation was met.

PSG were the most strongly linked with a move for the 20-year-old, especially after Kevin Trapp’s move to Eintracht Frankfurt, but in the end Gigio remained at Milan.

Attention has now turned to his renewal though, as his current contract expires in 2021 and the club are not keen on winding that down to the final year.

As per MilanNews.it, the Rossoneri leadership are set to sit down with agent Mino Raiola to discuss a new deal, but they face a ‘chess game’.

Milan are hoping that Donnarumma’s will can be decisive in negotiations as he wants to stay at the club, however Raiola is a tough negotiator meaning talks could be complex. 

In addition, the report adds that Milan are well aware of Gigio’s value and know that he is already one of the strongest goalkeepers in Europe.
