Donnarumma Agrees To Extend Contract With Milan
With this be the end of the Raiola-Donnarumma saga?
Reports in Italy claim that the war between Milan and agent Mino Raiola will finally reach its finale, as Donnarumma is set to remain at the club.
Fassone and Raiola have reached an agreement for the renewal of Gigio, who will sign a new 5-year deal until 2022, earning €4 million per season, according to La Gazetta dello Sport. However, the contract is likely to include a release clause, which will most probably be related to a Champions League qualification.
The 18-year-old, and his entourage were expected to respond to Milan’s offer on Tuesday, but no answer arrived and in its place was another delay, but finally club’s officials and the troubled agent will meet on Thursday to draft the contract.
Donnarumma has just 12 months remaining on his contract, and Milan have been eager to secure his future quickly so that they can essentially continue to plan with him in the team. It has not been that straightforward sadly, and there was undoubtedly a growing sense of discontent among supporters.
“Everyone knows that my wish is to stay at Milan. I am looking for a house in the city to live with my family. I am calm, all the parties involved know the decision I have made. I am very much tied to these colors”, the talented shot-stopped told GQ.
Mino Raiola has previously stated that Donnrauma has attracted the interest of a number of 11 top clubs, with Manchester United, Manchester City, Real Madrid, Paris Saint-Germain mentioned as primary contenders.
