Milan are currently deep in negotiations with Mino Raiola over the renewal of Gigio Donnarumma, whose contract will expire in the summer. However, it’s far from easy even though the player himself wants to stay.
The goalkeeper is comfortably one of the best in the world at the age of just 22, and it’s clear that losing him for free would be a disaster for the Rossoneri. Negotiations with Mino Raiola have been ongoing for quite some time, but it’s never easy with that man.
The Dutch-Italian agent is notorious for getting what he wants and adding huge commissions to each deal that is made. As an agent, he does his job very well and serves his clients, but he’s a frustrating man for the clubs.
As revealed by one of Barcelona’s presidential candidates, Toni Freixa, the Catalan side paid a whopping €11.5m in commissions to Raiola when they signed Zlatan Ibrahimovic. This, of course, is exactly the kind of thing Milan want to avoid.
“We now never pay more than 5 per cent commission for a signing. But at one time, we paid 11.5 million euros to Mino Raiola for the signing of Ibrahimovic,” he told Sport.
