Gianluigi Donnarumma has reportedly communicated to the AC Milan management his desire to renew his contract and stay at the club.
It has been reported for months now how the Rossoneri face a crossroads regarding the future of their prized young goalkeeper, just as they did back in 2017.
With his deal set to run out Milan must either agree a renewal or sell him this summer, so as not to risk letting him leave for free in a year’s time, with Juventus, Real Madrid, PSG and Chelsea all linked by various outlets.
According to Sunday’s edition of Tuttosport though (via MilanLive), the 21-year-old has contacted the Milan management – in particular CEO Ivan Gazidis – to let them know he wants to stay at Milan.
However, he has set out a certain condition: he will say yes to the contract renewal if the club does not reduce his salary from the current €6m-a-year, a request which seems fair given that the aforementioned clubs would surely be able to offer more.
Donnarumma therefore still gives priority to Milan as he is happy at the club, he is a top player in the team and would happily sign an extension, provided they do not try to reduce his salary.
The decision is now up to Gazidis and the owners Elliott Management, who wanted to reduce the wage bill.
