Milan hangs on to keeper prodigy
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.
