Chelsea have opened talks with Mino Raiola over a possible deal for AC Milan goalkeeper Gianluigi Donnarumma, a report claims.
Milan face a race against time regarding the future of Donnarumma as his contract expires at the end of the 2020-21 season, meaning that he is within a year of being able to leave on a free transfer.
Although every major media outlet is claiming that Milan will soon sit down for talks with his agent Mino Raiola over a renewal, that hasn’t stopped clubs showing interest.
Football Insider are claiming that Chelsea have turned their attention to Donnarumma after difficulties in signing Edouard Mendy from Rennes.
The Blues want to sign a new number one this summer after splashing out on the likes of Hakim Ziyech, Timo Werner and Ben Chilwall and are exploring various options across Europe.
Frank Lampard is looking to offload Kepa Arrizabalaga and bring in a new keeper, and while Chelsea apparently know it’s a ‘long shot’ to land the €50m-rated Donnarumma, they are giving it a try and have opened talks, presumably with agent Mino Raiola.
