"Mino Raiola (the player's agent) has just told me there will be no extension with Donnarumma and that the decision is definitive", the club's general manager Marco Fassone told reporters after a 40-minute meeting with Raiola.
Donnarumma is accused of being a traitor, whilst Raiola is only accused of.simply being Raiola.
It was announced this week that the 18-year-old goalkeeper will not extend his contract with the Rossoneri, and with only a year remaining on his current deal, Milan appear likely to cash in on the goalkeeper this summer rather than risk him walking away for nothing in 12 months.
He has made 68 appearances over the last two seasons.
Mirabelli added: "For the moment, nothing will happen with Donnarumma". Marotta is very talented on the market, so if he is interested in a goalkeeper, we are here.
"I want to remind him of all those who put money before all else, for example Kaka and (Andriy) Shevchenko, who left Milan for Real Madrid and Chelsea only to later bitterly regret it".
"He would've had the captain's armband and, frankly, it was an enormous offer, considering his young age and Milan's situation: €25m net over five years means €50m gross for the club". The input we got from the owners is not to accept offers. It's not true that on Thursday there was tension with Raiola and we argued with him.
"We have the player's word and Bayern gave us permission to contact him", Marotta said.
"We are feeling bitter, as are our fans".
