Gianluigi Donnarumma latest: In-demand goalkeeper to have £62million release clause in new AC Milan contract


Manchester United and Real Madrid target Gianluigi Donnarumma’s new contract at AC Milan will contain a £62million release-clause.

The goalkeeper has been locked in talks with the Italian club over fresh terms for months as his present deal is due to expire in under a year.

At one point negotiations had seemingly collapsed beyond repair after the 18-year-old’s agent, Mino Raiola, claimed his client had been bullied by Milan.

However, relations have improved since then and Donnarumma is finally ready to put pen to paper on a new five-year contract.

The news will come as a blow to both Manchester United and Real Madrid, who had been monitoring the Italian’s situation very closely.


The pair will, however, be buoyed by the fact that Donnarumma’s new deal has a release-clause in it.

Indeed, according to Gazzetta dello Sport, Milan will be forced to let the teenager go if they receive an offer of £62m.

That amount is a compromise between the club and player as both had made differing demands.

Donnarumma reportedly wanted the clause set at £44m if Milan failed to qualify for the Champions League, while the San Siro side wanted it fixed at £88m.
