CdS: Real Madrid prioritise Donnarumma as Navas replacement

By Oliver Fisher -

With Keylor Navas on his way out of the Santiago Bernabeu at the end of the season, Real Madrid will be looking to sign a long-term replacement for the Costa Rica International.

According to today’s edition of Il Corriere dello Sport, Real Madrid president Florentino Perez has already identified the future goalkeeper of the club: AC Milan starlet Gianluigi Donnarumma.

The 18-year-old goalkeeper has been playing on a regular basis for AC Milan for the last 18 months but he has yet to sign his first pro contract with the Rossoneri.

The Serie A giants, in fact, are in talks to sell a majority stake in the club but have failed to finalise a deal yet. Although the player is reportedly more than willing to stay at AC Milan, his agent Mino Raila won’t make him sign a new contract until he knows the new owners of the club and their plans for the future.

Real Madrid are said to have already made contact to sign the 18-year-old starlet as Florentino Perez wants him to become the next Iker Casillas. Adriano Galliani, however, is still in talks with the player’s agent trying to convince him to sign a new contract with Milan.
