"Ten days ago, [sporting director] Mirabelli had made an offer which we believed to be important". (Donnarumma's agent) Mino Raiola has conveyed to me Donnarumma's decision not to renew.

The Italian giants' encouraging start to the summer transfer window has been dealt a major blow and they now face a tricky decision regarding the prodigious 18-year-old.

Donnarumma has been hot properly since he became the second-youngest goalkeeper to play in Serie A when he made his Milan debut at just 16-years-old.

Donnarumma, who stands at 1.96 metres, is one of the most promising young goalkeepers in Europe.

"We were confident that Gigio would be the goalkeeper for the "new" Milan, the pillar around which the rest of the team would be built, but we will have to revise our plans..."

AC Milan was hoping to rebuild their club and close the gap between themselves and Serie A powerhouse Juventus under their new ownership.

"This decision, taken by the player and his agent, makes us sad but we must move forward, Milan must move forward".

"Naturally, the decision leaves a bitter taste in the mouth", lamented Fassone.

The Red Devils have been made to sweat over the future of their shot-stopper in recent months, with Real seemingly keen to try again to sign him as they target a replacement for Keylor Navas ahead of next season.

There's absolutely no way Milan will be prepared to let one of their star players leave for nothing next summer, and reports are already abound that heavyweights Real Madrid and PSG are set to swoop for the want-away custodian.
