AC Milan

Chelsea transfer boost as Gianluigi Donnarumma’s AC Milan contract talks hit bump

GIANLUIGI DONNARUMMA’s contract talks with AC Milan have reportedly hit a hitch, in a boost to interested Chelsea.

The Serie A giants are desperate to keep their young No1, who has been a regular fixture between the sticks at San Siro since he was just 16.

But his current deal expires in June and reaching an agreement with his agent Mino Raiola is no easy feat.

According to Sky Italia, talks between Milan and Raiola are currently ‘paused’, with both parties having hit an impasse.

Having initially offered a five-year deal on around £100,000-a-week, plus bonuses, Milan have upped their offer to £115,000-a-week, as well as Champions League-related incentives.

Italian outlet Libero reported earlier this month that Chelsea are ready to blow Milan’s offer out of the water, however, with a £150,000-a-week deal mooted.

Milan believe that there is a will on Donnarumma’s part to stay, having grown up with the club.

And they will not be drawn by Raiola’s suggestion of a one-year deal.

Instead, club chiefs remain calm and believe that Donnarumma, 22, will eventually decide to sign.

AC Milan currently sit second in the Serie A table, six points behind rivals and leaders Inter with 11 games remaining.

They are also six points above fifth-placed Napoli, and are desperate to qualify for the Champions League – a competition that Donnarumma is yet to play in.

Sealing qualification could be key to retaining Italy’s No1, who sees it as imperative that he becomes a regular in the competition.

Donnarumma has already amassed a remarkable 241 appearances for his club, and Milan believe that this number will continue to grow beyond the end of this season.
