Gianluigi Donnarumma is contracted to AC Milan until 2018.

Gianluigi Donnarumma will not commit to a new contract at AC Milan until the success of the club's takeover has been assessed, his agent Mino Raiola has said. The 17-year-old goalkeeping sensation is only contracted to Milan until 2018 and has been linked with many of Europe's biggest clubs, including Chelsea, Juventus and Manchester City.

Chinese company Sino-Europe Sports is set to take over the San Siro side after signing a preliminary agreement in August, but the success of that move and direction of the club are important factors for Donnarumma before he makes a decision. "We will have to see what will become of this Milan before we make our assessments," Raiola told TuttoMercatoWeb.

Donnarumma's AC Milan teammate Ignazio Abate, though, is very confident the shot stopper will opt to remain with the club. "Honestly, I'm calm," the defender told Premium Sport. "The lad has always been a Milan fan, as he said, and he's already at a top club. This club will come back to the top of world football sooner or later, and he will definitely stay and be a star in these colours."

Donnarumma has been Milan's first-choice goalkeeper since breaking in to the team in October 2015.
