AC Milan has announced the extension of Gianluigi Donnarumma’s contract on a new four-year deal, with buy-out clause believed to be worth £88m.
Donnarumma, through his agent, Mino Raiola, had previously told the San Siro outfit he will not renew his contract which has 12 months left, a decision that infuriated Milan faithfuls.
The 18-year-old talented goalkeeper has now made a remarkable U-turn, agreeing to pen a £100,000 per week new deal with the Italian giants.
