Manchester United and Real Madrid Fight Over Donnarumma’s Signature

AC Milan might have a hard time keeping Gianluigi Donnarumma as the young goalkeeper has the eyes of Real Madrid and Manchester United set on him.

 

According to reports, the football powerhouses are keeping tabs on the kid wonder.

 

The Los Blancos is allegedly seeking to replace Keylor Navas while United is also looking for someone to take David de Gea’s place.

 

The 17-year-old goalkeeper has been at the center of the spotlight because of his impressive performances at such a young age. He has been often compared as the protégée of yet another world-class goalie, Gianluigi Buffon and despite his age, he has already made two caps for the Azurris.

 

Back in Milan, he has transformed into a household name. His popularity has already risen to greater heights that it is quite impossible to mention Milan, without mentioning his name too.

 

In such a short time of span, he has already made 49 appearances for the Rossonerris. As a matter of fact, he emerged as the top choice despite the presence of Diego Lopez and Christian Abbiati.

 

Milan of course, will do anything to keep him. Reports have it that the club is already preparing something, perhaps a better offer to convince him to stay at San Siro since his contract with the club is still in effect until 2018.

 

However, it looks like both Real Madrid and United are unwilling to throw the white towel. Yet, between the two, the Red Devils is seen as the one, which has the upper-hand in the transfer window.

 

United’s edge can be attributed to their strong relationship with super-agent, Mino Raiola, who happens to be his manager as well.

 

Raiola facilitated the transfer of Paul Pogba, Zlatan Ibrhimovic and Henrikh Mkhitaryan.

 

But other than the above-mentioned squads, it looks like Milan also need to worry about Juventus, who is also eager to secure Donnarumma’s signature.
