CM: Man Utd and Chelsea ready to rival Real Madrid for signing of €50m Milan star

By Oliver Fisher -

Premier League duo Chelsea and Manchester United are in the running to sign goalkeeper Gianluigi Donnarumma from AC Milan, a report claims.

Having been close to leaving three years ago, the Donnarumma saga seems set for a second instalment. The 20-year-old is on a contract which expires in 2021, meaning the Rossoneri are keen to get his future resolve before the deal moves into its final year.

However, il Corriere dello Sport reported earlier in the week that a renewal will be ‘far from simple’, while La Gazzetta dello Sport stated on Saturday that a departure in June is the most likely option at present.

There has been no shortage of interested suitors, with a number of outlets linking Paris Saint-Germain, Juventus and Real Madrid with a move for the former Primavera stopper.

According to the latest from Calciomercato.com, the track leading to Juve is now a colder one after the renewal of Szczesny, but PSG and two big English clubs – namely Chelsea and Manchester United – remain on the trail of Donnarumma.

The most concrete option at present, however, comes from Spain, where Real Madrid are already thinking of an upgrade on Thibaut Courtois.

La Gazzetta have maintained their stance that, if sold in the summer, Donnarumma’s asking price would start at €50m.
