Tuttosport: Milan hold new talks over Donnarumma renewal as release clause is inevitable

By Isak Möller -

Gigio Donnarumma has recovered from COVID-19 and will play from the first minute against Udinese tomorrow. During his absence, his importance became very clear and Milan are hoping to keep him for a long time. 

However, an agreement must be reached on the renewal. Mino Raiola, as reported by Tuttosport (via MilanNews.it), is currently in Milan and had new contacts with the Rossoneri management to take stock of the situation.

Paolo Maldini and Ricky Massara are willing to raise the offer from €6m, the current amount, to €7.5m per year plus bonuses. The agent, however, wants more but has promised his client to please him (and Gigio wants to stay).

The inclusion of a release clause, an option that now seems inevitable, will play a key role in the negotiation. In case of failure to qualify for Champions League, Raiola wants a €30-35m release clause to be activated, while Milan can accept €50m.
