Super-agent Mino Raiola has given the biggest indication yet that young goalkeeper Gianluigi Donnarumma could leave AC Milan in the summer.
The 17-year-old has attracted huge attention by winning the Supercoppa Italiana at such a young age and establishing himself in the first team at the San Siro.
Yet, after a number of below par performances recently, he has come under fire from some fans.
That has led Raiola to suggest to Gazzetta Italia that he and his client will consider their situation at the end of the season, with several clubs thought to be waiting in the wings if he does leave.
“We’ve taken note [of the criticism],” Raiola said.
“We just have to see what kind of a club Milan are going to be, and I’ve already told [general manager Adriano] Galliani this.
“I have to think of his interests and then we will see if there is any interest from Europe’s big clubs.
“Gigio is worth as much as a Modigliani, who is one of the greatest Italian artists. If a price were to be put on him then it would be Milan who would name it. The lad’s contract is not expiring just yet though, so we shouldn’t make a drama for no reason.”
Even if he does leave Milan, there are no guarantees that he’ll head to the Premier League.
Juventus need a long-term replacement for Donnarumma’s idol, Gianluigi Buffon, and it’s been suggested that he could be the man the Serie A champions look to.
According to the Sun, Chelsea and Manchester United are both interested should either of them lose their current goalkeepers to Real Madrid.
