AC Milan are still confident that they will get a signature from Gianluigi Donnarumma and that he will stay at the club, according to Fabrizio Romano.
Milan are in the middle of a battle for the Scudetto at best and a scrap for a top four spot at worst, but the media headlines over the international break have once again been dominated by the future of Donnarumma, whose contract expires at the end of the season.
The urgency and paranoia seems to have been slowly rising as the weeks have ticked by since the January transfer window. All reports of optimism have faded into the background replaced by uncertainty and hysteria by the newspapers, with less than 100 days left until the Italy international will not longer technically and legally be a Milan player.
However, Fabrizio Romano has offered a more positive take on the situation, writing the following on Twitter…
“There’s still no agreement signed between Donnarumma and AC Milan, his contract is gonna expire in two months… but the board is still ‘confident’ and in talks to find a solution. Raiola has not received any bid from Chelsea for Donnarumma, as of today.”
