Source claims Chelsea have tabled huge €40m deal to Milan star; player has other ideas

By Oliver Fisher -

AC Milan have reached out to agent Mino Raiola to offer goalkeeper Gianluigi Donnarumma a bumper contract, according to a report.

It was claimed on Thursday that Chelsea are ready to make an offer for Donnarumma however Real Madrid and PSG will provide competition.

Then, the Sunday Express stated earlier today that Chelsea have asked Raiola to keep them updated on contract talks between Milan and his client, 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.

According to the latest from Sportitalia journalist Alessandro Jacobone, Chelsea have made their move for Donnarumma by offering a five-year contract worth €8m-a-year plus bonuses, therefore a contract worth over €40m in total.

However, Jacobone also claims that Donnarumma wants to try and explore a solution whereby he can stay at Milan, his boyhood club whom he recently reiterated his love for.
