An ultimatum has been issued by AC Milan to super agent Mino Raiola, insisting that the club would make their highly rated goalkeeper Gianluigi Donnarumma sit in the stands next season if a new deal isn’t signed by the end of June.
Donnarumma is currently one of the hottest young properties in Europe, and the Rossoneri are keen to keep the goalkeeper, and thus, are pushing to extend his contract which is set to expire at the end of next season.
With a meeting scheduled for next week, negotiations with the 18-year-old’s agent have been in progress, but the club seems to be exasperated now due to Raiola’s stalling.
According to Italian daily Corriere della Sera, the Serie A giants appear to have lost their patience, and have given an ultimatum to the super agent regarding the wonder kid’s contract situation. The club has threatened Raiola that if a new contract is not signed by the end of June, Donnarumma would be forced to sit in the stands next season.
Also, the Rossoneri are said to be willing to lose their young goalkeeper on a free transfer at the end of next season, instead of allowing the Italian shot-stopper to leave this summer for a fee that they consider to be lower than his value.
Premier League giants Manchester United and Manchester City have been keeping an eye on the youngster’s current situation, and are likely to make a move soon, should the standoff between Raiola and AC Milan continue.
