AC Milan have made another incredibly bold move. The news the other day of a verbal agreement between Donnarumma and Milan? It came without the involvement of Gianluigi Donnarumma’s agent, Mino Raiola.

According to Sky, Milan have refused to speak to Raiola altogether and are dealing entirely with the Donnarumma family. The contract and the terms of renewal have been agreed between them and Milan, which is likely a big reason why Antonio Donnarumma will move to Milan.

Gigio still needs to sign the deal - but there could be trouble here. We aren’t sure of the legal side of Raiola’s representation, but it could mean that any deal signed without him is in trouble. Gigio’s voice is the most powerful here, but don’t let that calm you. Mino Raiola could get this deal off the table in an instant - but Milan know that and ideally, they are working with people who know a thing or two about contract law.

One thing’s for sure, if Mino pulls this deal, he might seriously break the hearts of the Donnarumma family - who have something on the table with their best interests at heart.
