Revealed: The huge commission payment Raiola wants from Donnarumma deal

Gianluigi Donnarumma is out of contract with Milan at the end of the season, with Chelsea and Juventus notably linked with the Italy international goalkeeper.

Donnarumma, who has been on the books of Milan since 2013 as a youth then 2015 as a professional, has made 250 appearances for the San Siro club.

His last, however, could arrive in Sunday’s crunch fixture with Atalanta, which will determine whether Milan make the Champions League next season.

Milan’s Donnarumma offer

According to a report from Gazzetta dello Sport, though, Donnarumma could remain at Milan should they finish in the top four. That will be guaranteed if they beat Atalanta.

Milan, it is said, have offered Donnarumma €8 million-per-year and want him to sign a five-year deal that would tie him down until 2026.

Raiola, though, only wants his client to have a two-year contract. This would offer the young goalkeeper far more flexibility in his career and could potentially open the door to a transfer as early as 2022.

What appears to be a greater stumbling block, though, is the commission that the agent wants paid for his role in brokering a deal. Gazzetta reports that Raiola wants in the region of €20m, though the paper admits that other sources suggest that around €10-15m would be sufficient.

If their figure is on the money, however, that would see the agent recouping more in commission than Donnarumma would earn in wages over the course of the two-year deal that Raiola is pushing for.

Raiola is set to be a busy agent this summer, with another of his most notable clients, Manchester United’s Paul Pogba, also facing something of an uncertain future. The World Cup winner, though, is not out of contract until 2022 but there remains much to be resolved in that case.
