Manchester United target Gianluigi Donnarumma looks set to extend his stay at AC Milan, while Juventus are still hoping they can stop Alex Sandro joining Chelsea, according to Sunday’s European papers.



Gianluigi Donnarumma is reportedly set to stay at AC Milan after changing his mind on a move.

The 18-year-old, who is regarded as the finest young goalkeeper is Europe, has been strongly linked with both Manchester United and Real Madrid this summer but now looks like he is going nowhere.

Fan protests and Milan’s recent frenzied transfer activity are behind Donnarumma’s decision not to leave, according to Gazzetta dello Sport.

United were said to be targeting Donnarumma, who had fake money thrown at him by Italy fans at the Euro U-21 Championships, as a potential replacement for David de Gea but rumours that United’s number one could be Real bound appear to be lessening.


Juventus will reportedly try to tempt Chelsea target Alex Sandro to stay with a two-year contract extension and a salary in the region of €4.5/5 million-a-year.

The Brazilian has already agreed personal terms with Antonio Conte’s men and although Juve are unable to match Chelsea’s wage offer they are still hoping that the move to Stamford Bridge falls through.

Sandro currently earns €2.5million-a-year but Chelsea have offered €7million to lure the player to the Premier League, according to the report in Il Corriere dello Sport.

Juve have one last ace up their sleeve, however, with the Italian champions trying to bring in Sandro’s former Porto team-mate and very close friend Danilo from Real Madrid.
