Zaccardo blames Raiola over Donnarumma contract extension

Former Milan and Italy defender Cristian Zaccardo believes Gigio Donnarumma would have already extended his contract with Milan if it wasn’t for Mino Raiola.

Donnarumma will see his contract expire at the end of the season, and according to reports in Italy, he has already rejected two offers from the Rossoneri.

“Gigio wants to stay at Milan, and I am sure he’d accept a certain sum if he would hold talks with Milan alone,” Zaccardo, a 2006 Italy World Cup winner, told Perform.

“He can get more money with an agent, so that’s also needed.

“Gigio is Milan’s most important player. I know him well since he is my neighbour.

“I don’t think he cares about the money. He deserves the praise because, despite everything that is going on, he remains calm on the pitch.

“This situation doesn’t have an impact on him and it’s not easy at his age. Many clubs want him, he could leave for free.

“As a fan, I hope he stays, but as of today, there is the 51 per cent of chances he leaves.”
