Fabrizio Romano for Calcio Mercato is reporting that Gianluigi Donnarumma's contract renewal is now at the top of the agenda for AC Milan after the conclusion of the renewal of Zlatan Ibrahimovic with Mino Raiola. The current deal for the young goalkeeper is set to expire in June 2021 and thus a renewal would be vital so as to protect Milan from losing his to a free transfer next summer and also to lock him down as the first team goalkeeper for the foreseeable future. Milan are reportedly convinced that the goalkeeper will sign the renewal as he wants to remain with the club. The report notes that talks are set to begin soon and the starting point will be the 6 million salary that he currently earns.

Gianluca di Marzio via MilanLive.it is reporting that Raiola never asked Milan for 10 million euros per year for Donnarumma refuting reports earlier in the week from Corriere della Sera. The 21 year old caused a massive stir last time he needed to renew, let's see if it is different this time around.

Di Marzio also concurs with Romano that negotiations are yet to kick off as he says:

“After the renewal of Ibrahimovic, AC Milan and Raiola did not address the issue of the renewal of Donnarumma, they will presumably do so at the end of the transfer market.”
