Donnarumma set for new contract

Gianluigi Donnarumma will reportedly sign a contract extension with Milan in February, tying him down until 2022.

The 17-year-old has established himself as the Rossoneri’s first-choice goalkeeper, but his current deal expires at the end of next season.

Agent Mino Raiola has warned that he won’t see his client tied to the club with uncertainty over the new Chinese owners, and Juventus have reportedly show interest as a replacement for his namesake, Buffon.

However, Tuttosport reports that there has been a breakthrough in talks, and Donnarumma will officially sign his new contract when he turns 18 in February.

The young ‘keeper will agree to say with the Diavolo until 2022, and in return his salary will be bumped from €160,000 per season to €3m.
