Gianluigi Donnarumma TEAMtalk

AC Milan have given Gianluigi Donnarumma one month to decide his future, according to a report in Italy.

The Italy goalkeeper is out of contract in Milan in June and the Rossoneri are reportedly getting itchy feet. And now, according to Tuttosport Milan have imposed a deadline of May 23 for the player to decide his future. Chelsea and Manchester United are understood to be interested in taking the player on a free transfer.

Manchester United are all set to overhaul their goalkeeping department this summer and will be looking for a competition for Dean Henderson and David de Gea.

De Gea though could move on after losing his place to Henderson. West Bromwich Albion’s Sam Johnstone has been linked with a return.

Chelsea meanwhile, are also believed to be on the hunt for a new No.1. Thomas Tuchel is not convinced by Eduoard Mendy and Kepa Arrizabalaga.

The Italian source suggest agent Mino Raiola wants a new new deal worth more than €200,000 a week for his client. Milan have put €130,000 on the table and, as yet, there has been no compromise.

TalkSPORT claim Donnarumma will extend his contract in Serie A and snub a a move to the Premier League.

Their European transfer expert Chris Parrott says with Milan on on the verge of returning to the Champions League they will agree a new deal with the player.

Milan have wanted the player to remain all along.

Nevertheless, ESPN noted Milan have not yet given up hope of convincing him to stay.

However, Italian outlet CalcioMercato (via Goal) recently stated that a ‘personal agreement’ has been reached with would-be Donnarumma replacement, Mike Maignan.

The Lille stopper, 25, had been a target for both Tottenham and Man Utd, but now appears destined for Milan if a fee can be agreed.
