The saga surrounding Gianluigi Donnarumma means that AC Milan’s mercato focus has been somewhat distracted recently.
It was revealed on Thursday by club director Marco Fassone that the 18-year-old goalkeeper would not be renewing with the Rossoneri.
This has forced the leadership to eye alternatives for the position, with the strongest links being to Mattia Perin of Genoa, Neto of Juventus and Bernd Leno of Bayer Leverkusen.
Now, a new name has emerged. According to MilanNews.it, Rui Patricio of Sporting Lisbon and the Portuguese national team, is being eyed by the Milan leadership.
