Super agent Mino Raiola is making a huge attempt that may favor Chelsea in the upcoming transfer window as he looks to insert a clause in the Blues’ target’s new contract. Raiola is said to be attempting to insert a fresh clause in his client Gianluigi Donnarumma’s new contract at AC Milan.
21-year-old Donnarumma will see his current deal expire at the end of the current season and has attracted a lot of interest from a host of top European clubs including the likes of Liverpool, Chelsea, Paris Saint-Germain, Real Madrid, and Arsenal. Despite links to a couple of clubs across Europe, Chelsea are said to be the front-runners for his signature and are reportedly willing to go all out to take him to Stamford Bridge in the summer.
AC Milan have tabled a new five-year deal for the Italian goalkeeper and are confident that a deal will be struck by both parties, but Raiola is demanding that the release clause be included in the new deal.
Being one of the top agents in the world of football, Raiola is widely-known to be a tough nut to crack when it comes to going into negotiations with clubs either for the transfer of players or for contract renewals. Donnarumma has come under criticism for having not yet signed a new deal in recent times but is reportedly willing to do so now.
