Romano: Optimism filters from Milan over Donnarumma’s renewal – player’s will is key
By Oliver Fisher -

AC Milan have not yet given up hope regarding the idea of reaching an agreement with Gianluigi Donnarumma over a renewal, it is claimed.

The dilemma that the Rossoneri face with their star goalkeeper has been well documented. His contract expires in 2021 meaning that an agreement over a new deal must be reached before next season or he is likely to be sold, so as to avoid losing him for free next year.

According to Fabrizio Romano’s latest for Calciomercato.com though, Milan are awaiting a meeting with agent Mino Raiola once the Coronavirus emergency is over and they have not given up hope regarding Donnarumma’s stay.

Raiola has never denied the idea of ​​taking Donnarumma towards a club that has top ambitions, but the situation is currently in stand-by until a meeting can take place.

Milan’s thoughts continue to filter: the club remembers how in 2017 it seemed impossible that Gigio would stay, but it was he who imposed the renewal after Raiola had clashed with Fassone and Mirabelli.

The Rossonero heart of Donnarumma is an incalculable factor in this negotiation, and for this reason having more time increases Milan’s hopes. However, they will demand an answer by the end of the season: the 21-year-old must decide whether to take a step towards renewal or be sold, because Elliott will not lose him for free.
