Based on studies, Milan have supplied Donnarumma a deal value £6.3million-per-season to entice him to remain.
However the stopper’s agent, Mino Raiola, is alleged to even be fielding provides from Italian champions Juventus and AC’s fierce rivals Inter.
Raiola hinted his consumer may go away Milan late final month, saying: “Donnarumma’s contract?
“His future might be a sunny future. The solar of Milan? The solar is in all places, the vital factor is that there’s the solar.”
