Fans react as Chelsea have opened talks to sign €60m-rated world-class player
According to reports, Premier League duo Chelsea and Manchester United have already opened talks with super-agent Mino Raiola for AC Milan’s highly-rated goalkeeper Gianluigi Donnarumma.
Donnarumma, 22, has spent his entire career at AC Milan, and after making his senior debut aged just 16, the commanding keeper has grown to become one of Europe’s most highly-rated shot-stoppers.
Despite his long-standing place at the heart of the Rossenari’s defence, the Italian’s long-term future has been cast into doubt as his contract edges closer to expiring this summer.
According to recent claims from transfer journalist Duncan Castle, who recently spoke on ‘The Transfer Window Podcast‘, two clubs leading the charge to sign Donnarumma in the summer are Chelsea and United.
Despite signing Edouard Mendy in the summer, Castles’ recent claims suggest Thomas Tuchel still feels he is lacking that cutting edge in between the sticks.
However, United’s goalkeeping situation is one of particular interest – With two of the best goalkeepers in David De Gea and Dean Henderson both among their ranks, it appears the club’s hierarchy are finding it tough to keep both shot-stoppers content.
