AC Milan could end up having to pay more to keep Gianluigi Donnarumma if they fail to qualify for the Champions League, a report claims.
According to La Repubblica, Milan are in talks over the renewals of players whose contracts expire at the end of the season, including Zlatan Ibrahimovic with whom negotiations are at a very advanced stage and he is set to stay until June 2022.
Meanwhile, Donnarumma is also oriented to stay at the club beyond June but it is a more complicated situation because the same agent – Mino Raiola – is asking for €10m net per season to renew, which is a big increase from the current €7m that makes him currently the second-highest paid player on the team.
Donnarumma’s future cannot be separated from qualification for the Champions League, a competition that is obviously priority for those who are considered among the strongest goalkeepers in the world in their position. If that target is not achieved, it is inevitable that the club will have to make a greater economic sacrifice to keep him.
Should a top four finish be confirmed that Milan could extend him at around €8million net plus easy bonuses to allow him to reach the all-important demand of €10m.
