Gianluigi Donnarumma was set to leave AC Milan after contract talks between the club and the player's agent, Mino Raiola, broke down.
The 18-year-old's current deal expires in June 2018, and it was suggested that Donnarumma will either sign a new deal or leave the club in this window.
Reports in Italy and Spain linked him heavily with a move to Los Blancos, but it seems the player has now made a U-turn on his decision to leave the Rossoneri.
The latest reports in Gazetta dello Sport suggest that the Italy shot-stopper will sign a new contract on Wednesday.
The new deal will reportedly see Donnarumma pocket €6 million (R90 million after tax) a year, making him the highest paid player at Milan.
With the massive annual wages, the teenager would earn more than Italy No. 1 Gianluigi Buffon, who reportedly earns €4 million (R60 million) a year at Juventus.
Manuel Neuer, with €9 million (R135 million), and David se Gea, with €6.8 million (R102 million), will remain the only two goalkeepers to earn more than the 18-year-old.
