Gianluigi Donnarumma sign new four-year contract with AC Milan

Donnarumma, who is represented by agent Mino Raiola, had rejected an offer to extend his contract beyond 2018, but the promise of improved terms – thought to be €6million a year – have encouraged a change of heart.

The news comes after prolonged speculation over the 18-year-old’s intentions, with the Italy international having been widely tipped to leave.

He deleted his Instagram account and claimed it was hacked during the European Under-21 Championship after a string of mixed messages on social media and also had fake money thrown at him by angry supporters during Italy’s match against Denmark in that competition.

Donnarumma’s decision to stay will further bolster Vincenzo Montella’s plans for 2017-18, with the likes of Hakan Calhanoglu, Franck Kessie, Ricardo Rodriguez, Mateo Musacchio, Andre Silva and Fabio Borini having been brought in.
