‘Donnarumma? Raiola is waiting…’

Adriano Galliani “hopes and thinks” that Gianluigi Donnarumma will stay at Milan but “Mino Raiola wants to know who the new owners are”.

The goalkeeper is out of contract at the end of next season, but the Rossoneri are working hard to tie the 17-year-old down.

However, his agent, Raiola, is wary about committing his client’s future to the Diavolo without guarantees from prospective new owners Sino-Europe Sports.

“I hope the contract will be signed when he comes of age,” Galliani explained to MilanNews, referring to Donnarumma’s 18th birthday on February 25.

“I hope and I think that he’ll stay in Milan. Raiola wants to know what the ambitions and future of Milan are, and who the owners are.

“We have a very good relationship not only with Gigio, but with Raiola. We wait for the closing.

It was reported earlier today that another of Raiola’s clients, Giacomo Bonaventura had agreed on a renewal until 2020.

“He’s a great player, we’ve reached an agreement until June 2020 which is being examined by the Chinese consortium.

“I proposed, and I’m confident we’ll get a yes.”

CEO Galliani then reflected on Milan’s 2016, including the defeat to Roma on Monday night.

“We definitely didn’t deserve to lose, but that’s football. We definitely played a good game, and we showed that our midfield of players who weren’t starters earlier this year can do better than Roma’s midfield.

“2016? It’s a year in which we reached two finals. If we get the Supercoppa Italiana it would be a great thing.

“In direct matches against Juventus I haven’t seen much between the two teams. I’m talking about the games in 2016.”
