Serie A giant AC Milan are keen on keeping highly sought after goalkeeper Gianluigi Donnarumma but the club says they are frustrated with the player’s agent Mino Raiola.
The new sporting director of the club Massimiliano Mirabelli made the revelations.
Donnarumma has a year left on his current deal with the San Siro but top sides are open to signing him. The 18-year old shot stopper has been decent in his role for the club, winning the hearts of top clubs. With the recent completion of the Chinese takeover of Milan, Mirabelli was part of the changes at the club.
The director wants to keep the club’s best players of which Donnarumma is one. He remains optimistic of convincing the player to stay at the club as they set rebuilding plans in motion.
“All we needed to do was look Donnarumma in the eyes to see if he wants to stay at Milan, and we could see that he wants to. But now we have also got to talk with his agent. We wanted to talk with him to understand how much the lad is attached to these colours.

Italian football legend Andrea Pirlo has revealed that he could have lined up for the best team in the world in Barcelona if he wanted to.
The AC Milan legend said he rejected a potential move to join Pep Guardiola’s ‘perfect’ team.
Pirlo started his pro career through a host of Italian football clubs like Brescia, Inter Milan, and Reggina before he developed into a superstar at Milan following his big-money move. He was with the Rossoneri for a decade before he decided to leave. He moved to Serie A giant Juventus as he left in the pecking order at the San Siro.
Pirlo said that before his move to play for the Bianconeri, he could have moved to Nou Camp.
“When I was at Milan, we played a friendly game at the Camp Nou and after the game, Pep Guardiola called me into his office inside the stadium. He asked me if I would like to play under him at Barcelona. It was very nice for me, to have been asked to his office and told that. At that time, Milan would never have allowed me to leave though,” Pirlo said recently in an interview with L’Equipe.
