Mi­lan hangs on to keeper prodigy

China Daily (Hong Kong) - - SPORTS -

AC Mi­lan’s Gian­luigi Don­narumma, re­garded as one of the finest young goal­keep­ers in the world, has agreed an ex­ten­sion to his con­tract keep­ing him at San Siro un­til 2021, the Ital­ians said on Tues­day.

His pre­vi­ous deal had been due to ex­pire in 2018. Last month, Don­narumma an­nounced he would not sign an ex­ten­sion, much to the fury of fans, who threw fake money at the 18-year-old dur­ing an Italy Un­der-21 match at June’s Euro­pean cham­pi­onships.

At the time, it was sug­gested that Mi­lan of­fered the player a new deal with an an­nual salary of $5.7 mil­lion.
