AC Milan’s first offer to Gianluigi Donnarumma for the renewal of his contract was not deemed satisfactory, a report claims.
Donnarumma was linked with a move away from the Rossoneri yet again this summer, and it was Paris Saint-Germain who were believed to be his strongest suitors.
La Gazzetta dello Sport made the bold suggestion that Milan were not totally against selling Donnarumma as long as their valuation was met.
Donnarumma currently earns the most out of any Milan player at €6million per year, as the paper revealed, but the issue of his contract renewal has now come to the fore.
According to a report from il Corriere dello Sport in September, Milan have a plan to extend the 20-year-old’s contract – which expires at the end of next season – as they have no intention of letting his current deal enter its last 12 months.
They claimed that Milan wanted Gigio to sign extension for €5m-a-year and subsequently take a pay cut, believing the player’s desire to stay at the club can help them in negotiations.
The latest from Sportitalia (via Calciomercato.com) claims that the first offer on the table was one to spread the total cost of his €6m-a-year deal over two more years until 2023 – an offer understandably deemed unacceptable by Mino Raiola.
Meanwhile, the renewal of Giacomo Bonaventura – whose contract expires at the end of the season – is on standby until he has played more games.
