Gianluigi Donnarumma has reportedly turned down two contract extension offers from AC Milan. Which gave a boost to the teams who are chasing the young Italian goalkeeper.
Donnarumma’ contract with The Rossoneri will expire at the end of the season. And he will be a free agent in the summer. And with the talent he has, many of the European Giants will lineup to sign him on a free.
The 22-year-old Italian goalkeeper has made 27 appearances in Serie A this season. He has kept 9 clean sheets with a 71% saving percentage. But his future at Milan is still unclear as he and his super-agent Mino Raiola are waiting for the best offers for themselves before committing the future for the Rossoneri.
Donnarumma to leave Milan?
Milan submitted an offer to Raiola for a contract renewal of €6 million net plus €1 million as the Champions League qualification bonus. The second offer contained a two-year intermediate offer of €7 million plus a bonus of €1 million.
However, Raiola wants a €12 million a year contract extension for his player. Raiola and Donnarumma wish to wait and see if Milan are to make another offer after securing their qualification for the Champions League. They are also waiting to see what kind of offers will come from the international market.
Juventus, Manchester United, Real Madrid, and Chelsea all are keeping tabs on Donnarumma as a player of his caliber won’t be available for free again. Milan remain calm about the situation as they are hopeful that Donnarumma will understand the situation.
Donnarumma wants to play in UEFA Champions League as he hasn’t played in the competition yet. Thus he is eyeing a short extension to see if Milan can be successful to play in the competition regularly. If they fail to qualify this season he might be on his way out of San Siro.
It will be interesting to see in an exciting transfer window. What the future holds for another big name. Donnarumma’ story can be very exciting in the transfer market as will he remain in Milan or go elsewhere.
