Italian teenage sensation Gianluigi Donnarumma is a transfer target for various European clubs, including Manchester United and Chelsea.
According to reports in Italy, Donnarumma has become a serious transfer target for both English clubs Manchester United and Chelsea. The AC Milan goalkeeper is yet to sign a new contract with the club.
The 18-year-old became the youngest ever player to replace Gianluigi Buffon during Italy v France back in September, and has since made two international appearances for Italy. He has also kept six clean sheets in 17 appearances in all competitions for AC Milan this season.

English clubs Manchester United and Chelsea plan to sign Donnarumma as a replacement for their current goalkeepers in future. Both David De Gea and Thibaut Courtois have been linked with Real Madrid in the last one year.
In addition to that, Donnarumma has also become a primary target for Zinedine Zidane’s Real Madrid. The European Champions are aiming to land Donnarumma as a replacement for Keylor Navas at the Bernabeu.
Donnarumma’s agent, Mino Raiola, is yet to discuss a new contract with AC Milan, as the club is waiting for its buyout to be completed by Sino-Europe. AC Milan CEO Adriano Galliani expects the player to sign the contract very soon.
“I hope the contract will be signed when he turns 18,” Galliani told Milan News.
“I hope and I think that he’ll stay in Milan. [His agent Mino] Raiola wants to know what the ambitions and future of Milan are, and who the owners are.
“We have a very good relationship not only with Gigio, but with Raiola. We wait for it to be concluded.”
Donnarumma is tipped as one of the brightest prospects in football world. He has already made over 40 appearances in Serie A so far in his early career.
