Milan goalkeeper Donnarumma won’t renew contract

While Donnarumma has been linked with the likes of Manchester United in the press, he had previously stated an intention to remain with theRossoneri.

The 18-year-old keeper made his Milan debut at just 16, in a pre-season game against Real Madrid.

Fassone said: “Mino Raiola has told me Donnarumma’s decision not to extend”.

AC Milan managing director Marco Fassone has hinted they’re prepared to keep Gigio Donnarumma to the final year of his contract.

“I know everything about Donnarumma – his family, relatives, every corner of his home”.

They have impressed already this summer with their spending and have already surpassed €100 million – a tally not reached by the club since 2001-02.

Perin is one of Italy’s most promising goalkeepers but the Italian shot-stopper has been suffering two knee injuries during the last couple of seasons and there are still concerns regarding his fitness.

AC Milan were left devastated as their teenage starlet Gianluigi Donnarumma opted to reject a contract extension, hence leaving the possibility of a summer exit wide open.

He is foreseen to be the second coming to Italy’s greatest ever goalkeeper Gianluigi Buffon.

Corriere dello Sport claim Real are interested in Donnarumma but they are not prepared to muscle in on a deal just yet. Guy’s first choice at a club like Milan, at his age, many players would give everything for that.

There are various clubs who are in contention to sign the youngster, with Manchester United seemingly the front-runners especially when David De Gea looks set to leave this summer.

Milan are determined to take control of the situation.

His list of individual honours with Juventus goes on and on and Donnarumma was expected to follow path after his ground breaking performances but that is highly unlikely now.
