Milan are reportedly confident Gianluigi Donnarumma wants to stay, and they’d demand around €70m to sell him.
Despite the 18-year-old signing a new contract in the summer, reports emerged today that his agent, Mino Raiola, was unhappy with the arrangement.
However, Sky Italia reports that Raiola has met with the Rossoneri twice in the last three weeks, and relations between the two parties are actually relatively good.
Donnarumma doesn’t want to be sold, and the only issue is that the Diavolo never signed the agreement on his release clause.
That said, if the goalkeeper does decide he wants to move and Milan get a serious offer, then Raiola is quite happy to move his client on.
Juventus would be the only Italian suitor, but it’s not thought the player himself is considering that as an option.
Paris Saint-Germain would be another option, but the French club were slightly irritated by Donnarumma’s rejection of their huge offer in the summer.
Meanwhile, Corriere della Sera is also reporting that the youngster is not for sale, but that situation could change if an impossible to reject offer were to arrive.
In contrast to Sky, the newspaper says that it was in fact Raiola who didn’t want to sign the release clause, which was to be set at €70m in case of European qualification or €40m otherwise.
Since that release clause was never signed, the Rossoneri are free to reject any offer and therefore, reports the paper, Donnarumma won’t leave for less than €70m.
Things could be reevaluated in the summer though, as Milan will have to sell players if they don’t qualify for the Champions League.
While the Diavolo may look to sell elsewhere to make up the shortfall, Donnarumma is their most saleable asset and would command the highest price.
