AC Milan appear no closer to solving either of their ongoing renewal sagas at present, according to a report from one journalist.
In Luca Marchetti’s latest editorial for TMW, he states that there could be a strength for Milan in the last weeks of negotiations: the fact that no other offers have arrived for Gianluigi Donnarumma and Hakan Calhanoglu to evaluate.
Regarding the former, an offer of €6m net per season plus €1m bonuses for five years was rejected, then the fixed part was raised by €1m but that too has not being accepted. Initially, the demand was €12m a year but it is a figure that no club has ever put on the plate.
The idea – offered by Milan – is a two-year contract at €7m plus €1m in bonuses with a €30/35m clause in case of non-participation in the Champions League. Even this was refused as Raiola wants the full €12m plus a lower clause. Milan will wait for Donnarumma, but they have no intention of raising their offer and that is why they have secured Mike Maignan of Lille for €12m plus bonuses.
Juventus are tempted to move for Donnarumma but they would have to sell Sczeszny first, and also their qualification for the Champions League is at risk it seems.
