AC Milan will discuss the renewal of Gianluigi Donnarumma once the transfer market closes and there are no distractions, a report claims.
The 21-year-old Italy international is currently contracted to Milan until June 2021, and appears no closer to penning a new deal in a situation agent Mino Raiola described as ‘sensitive’ earlier on Sunday.
However, Monday’s edition of Tuttosport (via MilanNews) provides a positive update on the situation. They claim that the renewal of Donnarumma will be discussed as soon as the transfer market is closed.
The goalkeeper’s desire to stay is well-known, so much so that there is already an agreement in principle for an extension until 2023 at €6million plus bonuses per season.
The importance of keeping Donnarumma for the credibility and perception of Milan’s project cannot be understated, given his impact on the team since breaking through as a 16-year-old under Sinisa Mihajlovic. He even wore the armband for the last three games of the 2019-20 season due to Romagnoli’s injury.
