It’s done. It’s over.

After a summer of speculation, AC Milan have finally completed what could amount to be there biggest signing of the season. Gianluigi Donnarumma has signed a contract extension that will give the young keeper a cause to celebrate - he’s going to be a millionaire.

Gigio will earn six million euros per season until 2021 from Milan. Despite this deal, Gigio’s future remains insecure - and he will likely leave the club in the near future, but at the very least it will be for €80 million, instead of leaving for free.

Despite Gigio’s signature, he will not have repaired his relationship with milanista worldwide. Milan fans, in general, became disgusted at Donnarumma’s perceived delay in signing with Milan, and especially angry at the words of Gigio’s agent, Mino Raiola. For others, it will be water under the bridge. It’s unlikely Gigio will enjoy a warm reception at the San Siro though, he’ll have to prove himself once more.

As well as this, Antonio Donnarumma will return to AC Milan to backup his younger brother. Donnarumma senior will take in €1 million per season. Not bad money if you can make it.
