PM: Possibility of bridge deal for Milan star re-emerges amid Chelsea and PSG links

By Oliver Fisher -

The idea of a bridge deal for AC Milan star Gianluigi Donnarumma is not beyond the realms of possibility, according to a report.

Milan face a race against time to secure the future of their prized young shot stopped as his current contract has just six months left to run, and while talks have been ongoing with Mino Raiola for some time there is nothing to suggest an agreement is imminent.

According to PianetaMilan, there is the possibility thar Donnarumma could only extend until 2023. That would be a two-year contract that would essentially secure the immediate future of the 21-year-old but push the issue of a longer renewal a bit down the line, relieving some of the time pressures that are at play.

The report adds that Donnarumma has no intention of leaving Milan and has given Raiola a mandate to work on the renewal, but Raiola knows how to push clubs to the brink and he could ask for a release clause inserting into a new contract in the case of non-qualification for the Champions League.

This comes after SportMediaset (via MilanLive) reported that Chelsea and PSG have opened talks with Raiola over signing his client and would be willing to put a contract worth €12-14million net per year on the table.
