Man Utd Handed Huge Boost in Their Pursuit of 6 ft 5 Serie A Star
Manchester United target Gianluigi Donnarumma is struggling to agree a new contract with AC Milan, according to Gazzetta dello Sport.
The Italy international goalkeeper has been identified as a potential replacement for David De Gea, who is expected to be heavily perused by Real Madrid again this summer.
Donnarumma, 18, has already amassed 63 appearances for the Serie A giants since making his debut two years ago and is firmly established as Europe’s most exciting goalkeeping talent.
The teenager’s current deal is set to expire in the summer of 2018 but is yet to agree fresh terms, despite talks being held between his representative Mino Raiola and Milan’s new owners.
Raiola, who already has two of his major clients in Henrikh Mkhitaryan and Zlatan Ibrahimovic parked at Old Trafford, is said to want clarification on the Chinese consortium’s plans for the club before instructing Donnarumma to sign an extension.
Milan are reportedly offering a contract until 2022, which would see Donnarumma’s wage rise from €160,000 per season to €3.2m
