Report: Chelsea reach out to agent of AC Milan star – €60m demands ‘not a problem’

By Oliver Fisher -

Chelsea have reached out to Mino Raiola to register their interest in AC Milan star Gianluigi Donnarumma, according to a report.

The Rossoneri face another crossroads regarding the future of their prized shot stopper just as they did back in 2017. With Donnarumma’s deal set to expire in 2021, they must either agree a renewal ahead of next season or sell him this summer, so as to at least generate a transfer fee from his sale.

Tuttosport claimed on Thursday that Chelsea are ready to make an offer for Donnarumma however Real Madrid and PSG will provide competition, while the Express are reporting that Manchester United are also interested.

According to the Daily Express, Chelsea have asked Raiola to keep them updated on contract talks between Milan and Donnarumma, with the Rossoneri still hopeful of tying the 21-year-old down to a long-term deal.

Raiola is apparently also aware of interest from Real Madrid and Paris Saint-Germain, and Milan are set to demand £55million (€60m) for their prized young asset if they are to sell him in the summer, but the fee is ‘not a problem’ for the Premier League side who want to sell Kepa this summer to raise the funds needed.
