An agreement has been reached between the Donnarumma family and Milan who will also sign Gigio’s brother Antonio and give him €1m a year.
The saga appears close to being over and the Donnarumma family will be a lot richer because of it, as both Gianluigi and his brother Antonio are ready to sign contracts at Milan with improved wages.
According to Sky Italia, an agreement between Milan and Mino Raiola & the Donnarumma’s has been reached: the 18-year-old will sign a five-year contract worth €6 million per season, while Antonio will get a contract worth €1 million net per season and will be a part of the Milan squad as a second or third goalkeeper.
Gianluca Di Marzio suggests that there will also be 2 exit clauses in the deal: one for €50m in the event that Milan don’t reach the Champions League next season, and one for €100m in the event that they do. That would allow Marco Fassone and Massimiliano Mirabelli to not lose him for free. The thought is that the clause is also for clubs in Italy, so for instance Juventus can get him next year.
This new contract would make Donnarumma the third highest paid footballer in Italy, just behind Gonzalo Higuain and Paulo Dybala, according to Milannews.it. Sky reports that before saying ‘yes’ to Milan, he rejected an offer from Paris Saint-Germain who were willing to give him €13m a year.
It remains to be seen when the signing will take place as the teenager is going to be busy over the next days with his final exams. Milan pay a heavy price to keep him, but won’t lose him for nothing.
