Gianluigi Donnarumma To Sign A New-Five Year Contract

Gianluigi Donnarumma

Gianluigi Donnarumma has completed a remarkable U-turn by agreeing to sign a new AC Milan contract, according to reports.

Donnarumma initially told Milan he would not be signing a renewal, with his contract due to expire in 2018, but the 18-year-old goalkeeper is reportedly set to perform a U-turn.

He has agreed to sign a new deal which will make him one of the best paid players in Italy, on £100,000 a week.

However, the only thing standing in the way of Milan tying down their most prized asset to a new deal is Raiola, according to Fassone.

“I had said that the Milan doors would be open should Gigio reconsider,” Fassone toldCorriere della Sera.

“He did reconsider and I get the feeling we are very close to a deal with the player and his family, even if we do not want to resort to other types of compromises.

“I think we are a day or two from the decision, which is down to the player.

“These decisions are never made just by the players. There are agents, in this case a very talented one who has his own ideas and convictions that are a little far away from ours, so I don’t know what the final decision will be.”

Donnarumma made his Serie A debut for Milan in October 2015 at the age of 16.

He played as Italy reached the semi-finals of the U21 European Championships this summer and has been capped at senior level for his country.
