Chelsea target Gianluigi Donnarumma ‘rejects two contract extension offers with AC Milan as agent Mino Raiola seeks an annual salary of £ 10.2 million for his client – with a goalkeeper set to be a free case this summer’
- Gianluigi Donnarumma of AC Milan is currently becoming a free agent this summer
- The 22-year-old goalkeeper has yet to agree a new contract with the Italian giants
- Chelsea are reportedly keeping an eye on his situation as they consider a summer bid
Chelsea could make their third goalkeeper sign-up in as many years, with The Blues boosted by the latest update around target Gianluigi Donnarumma.
Reports in Italy allege that AC Milan No. 1 has declined two contract extension offers – with talks about its future now on hold.
According to Gianlucadimarzio.comThe 22-year-old and his agent Mino Raiola have rejected two bids from the Italian giants and are now becoming a free agent this summer.
AC Milan goalkeeper Gianluigi Donnarumma has reportedly turned down two contract extensions
The 22-year-old is a reported target for Chelsea, who are monitoring his situation at AC Milan
The publication adds that he was initially offered a salary of £ 5.1 million a year with an additional £ 851,000 a year in bonuses should AC qualify for the Champions.
After declining those terms, Milan returned with an improved offer of £ 6 million salary plus £ 851,000 worth of add-ons which was also rejected.
Raiola is believed to want his client to earn around £ 10.2 million a year to stay in the San Siro.
Donnarumma has had many suitors if he left AC Milan with Juventus, Manchester United and Real Madrid all joining Chelsea in pursuit of the Italy international.
His agent Mino Raiola wants his client to earn £ 10.2 million a year – a figure that Milan has not yet reached
Over the past three years, Chelsea have jointly paid £ 94 million to Kepa Arrizabalaga (£ 72 million) and Edouard Mendy (£ 22 million), but the Donnarumma takeover would likely put their problems at No. 1 for the next decade.
With Mendy only arriving last summer, Kepa, who was not one of his kind, would face the Stamford Bridge exit again, with the Spaniard himself admitting his performance was not up to par.
The 26-year-old signed a seven-year deal worth £ 150,000 a week when he joined the club, and his contract didn’t expire until 2025.
However, the arrival of Donnarumma would likely confirm the departure of the world’s most expensive goalkeeper.
