Goalkeeper Gianluigi Donnarumma has signed a new four-year contract with AC Milan, the club have announced.
The 18-year-old’s future appeared to lie away from San Siro after his agent Mino Raiola told the club his client would not renew his deal.
But a post on Milan’s official Twitter feed on Tuesday read: “#ACMilan and @gigiodonna1 have reached an agreement to extend the goalkeeper’s contract through to 2021 #Gigio2021”
Donnarumma, seen as the long-term successor to Italy goalkeeper Gianluigi Buffon, has made over 70 appearances for the Rossoneri since his surprise breakthrough in October 2015 and many fine performances have attracted attention from high places.
He was linked with Juventus, Real Madrid and Manchester United after the initial announcement he would not extend his deal, which was due to expire next summer.
