Gianluigi Donnarumma would like to remain at AC Milan beyond the summer in order to complete one key objective, a report claims.
With Donnarumma’s deal set to run out in 2021, Milan face a crossroads: they 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.
It was reported by Tuttosport earlier in the week that the 21-year-old has actually communicated to the management – in particular CEO Ivan Gazidis – that he wishes to stay at Milan and sign a new deal.
Now, the same outlet (via MilanNews) have confirmed in their Thursday edition that Donnarumma would indeed like to stay, but he knows that his situation is delicate.
The paper notes that Gigio is not lacking in admirers as PSG, Real Madrid, Chelsea and Juventus are all circling, but the young goalkeeper has one dream: to play in the Champions League with the Rossoneri.
His agent Mino Raiola is waiting for a call from the Milan management, who are hoping that Donnarumma’s position could favour the outcome of the negotiation.
The departure of the likes of Giacomo Bonaventura and Lucas Biglia plus potentially Franck Kessié and Lucas Paquetà could help Gazidis to put on the table a salary suited to Gigio’s value and requests.
