A.C Milan’s high school goalkeeper Gianluigi Donnarumma has extended his contract with the club until 2021.
The 18-year-old Italy international, whose agreement was expected to lapse one year from now, looked liable to leave Milan in the wake of turning down another contract earlier on in June.
Donnarumma kept up his refusal to sign was not monetary after fans tossed fake cash at him amid an European Under-21 Championship a month ago.
Milan said the new arrangement was great news for “the player and the fans”.
Donnarumma broke into the team as a 16-year-old and has played very nearly 70 Serie An matches since and won four senior caps.
The player is spoken to by agents Mino Raiola, who handled the arrangements that have taken Paul Pogba and Romelu Lukaku to Manchester United.
