Gianluigi Donnarumma’s contract renewal will certainly be one of the priorities of the AC Milan management in the upcoming weeks and perhaps months. The goalkeeper is a key part of the team, but the Rossoneri have a tough nut to crack in the player’s agent Mino Raiola.
As we informed you this morning, citing Gazzetta dello Sport, Raiola wants a salary raise of 4 million euros for his client. This amounts to a total of 10 million euros net per season – an unsustainable figure for the club, which cannot go over 7 million.
This was confirmed in the afternoon by Sportmediaset (via milanlive.it), with the outlet also adding that the club is aiming for a three-year extension until June 2024.
However, Sportmediaset also came with an interesting hypothesis: Donnarumma could sign a mini renewal until 2022 with an option for another year.
This solution is certainly not the most advocated by the club, but with the current contract of the player expiring in June 2021, it could be a temporary solution.
It will be necessary to find an agreement with Raiola, who at the moment is asking for very high figures and making negotiations complicated. In this sense, it will be important for Donnarumma himself to take a stand to avoid the situation that happened in 2017.
