Mino Raiola wants to include a €40 million release clause in Gianluigi Donnarumma’s new contract with AC Milan.
The 21-year-old’s current deal ends at the end of the season and he has been linked with the likes of Chelsea over the past few weeks.
Milan have offered the Italian international a five-year deal, but Raiola wants any new agreement to include a €40m release clause.
Raiola is famed for driving a hard bargain and it comes as no surprise to find that he is trying to strike a favourable deal for Donnarumma.
Chelsea and Paris Saint-Germain have both been credited with an interest in the goalie and Raiola knows that they would offer his client a lucrative salary.
Donnarumma has had a turbulent time at Milan, with fans singling him out for criticism over previous contract negotiations.
Repeated mistakes did little to endear him to the Milan faithful, although he has undoubtedly returned to his best this season.
With his contract running down Donnarumma holds all the aces and Raiola can be expected to force Milan into agreeing to their demands.
