Gianluigi Donnarumma is expected to leave Milan this summer with Premier League clubs and Ligue 1 champions Paris Saint-Germain mooted as possible destinations for the goalkeeper.
The Italy international's contract expires in 2021 and, with no sign of an extension being agreed, I Rossoneri must decide to sell him this summer or let him walk away in June 2021 as a free agent.
Regardless of what the club decides, Italian publication Gazzetta dello Sport claims the 21-year-old has decided to leave San Siro, paving the way for a move elsewhere.
They cite how any extension would result in an increase on the €6m per season he currently earns, which would hurt the team's ability to strengthen in other positions. Additionally, tensions between agent Mino Raiola and key Milan executive Ivan Gazidis over Zlatan Ibrahimovic's future in Milan would affect Donnarumma's situation, given that he is also a client of Raiola.
Both Manchester clubs are interested in Donnarumma, though City currently boast one of the league's best goalies in Ederson, so it seems unlikely they would make a play for him any time soon. Raiola's breakdown in relations with the United hierarchy over Paul Pogba's current situation may also muddle a potential move to Old Trafford.
Everton have also been linked, with their chances boosted by the presence of Carlo Ancelotti as manager - though Jordan Pickford's status as the club's number one may make that deal tricky, even if the England international's stock has fallen considerably this season.
PSG are also named as a suitor for the 21-year-old, who could provide competition for Keylor Navas in goal, though the French club are particularly eyeing the possibility of bringing him to France for nothing when his deal expires in 2021.
It could become a wild chase to sign Donnarumma, who is seen by many as a future goalkeeping great. Real Madrid and Chelsea are additionally believed to be admirers of the Italian, and have made contact with Raiola with a view to signing him in the summer.
