Only Two Serie A Players Earn More Than Gianluigi Donnarumma After His New Deal

Only Two Serie A Players Earn More Than Gianluigi Donnarumma After His New Deal

Gianluigi Donnarumma's u-turn is complete, with the 18-year old goalkeeper now expected to sign an new and improved deal with AC Milan.

No official announcement has been made as of yet, but reliable outlets such as Di Marzio and Sky Sports Italia are reporting the news.

After turning down the initial offer on the table from the Rossoneri and it looking like he would be moving on after receiving plenty of backlash from supporters, Donnarumma is said to have rejected a much better package from PSG, where he would earn €13 million per season, to renew with Milan.

With wages of €6 million-a-year, The Italian will now earn more than his master, Juventus and Azzuri No.1 Gianluigi Buffon (€4 million), as part of his new deal, and is the third highest-paid player in the league on the whole.

According to data obtained by Gazzetta Dello Sport back in September, only Roma captain Daniele De Rossi and Juventus striker Gonzalo Higuain are ahead of Donnarumma when it comes to wages in the Italian top flight.

De Rossi, who recently extended his stay at the Stadio Olimpico, was said to be earning €6.5 million per year in the study, while Higuain is reported to be on close to €8 million.

Donnarumma's deal, set to be announced soon, will contain a €100 million (£88 million) release clause that will drop down to €50 million if big-spending Milan don't qualify for next season's Champions League.

Mino Raiola strikes again.

What do you make of the Donnarumma situation on the whole? Given that he could potentially be there goalkeeper for years to come, is he worth the hefty wages? Or is it mental that an 18-year old is earning such an amount?

Sound off in the comments section below.
