Manchester United and Liverpool have been put on alert after AC Milan Gianluigi Donnarumma’s price tag was cut by half, according to reports.

Despite only being 21, the Italian – who progressed through the ranks at Milan – has been a regular in the side for over four seasons and has racked up 190 appearances for the club so far.

However, his contract expires in the summer of 2021 and so he is at a crossroads in his career between moving on and signing a new deal with his Serie A employers.

According to MilanNews, talks between Donnarumma and Milan are set to be complicated and a summer departure is not off the cards.

Furthermore, the source claims that United and Manchester City, as well as Liverpool and Everton could make a move, while Paris Saint-Germain are also said to be keen.

Meanwhile, hopes for clubs interested in a move appear to have been boosted, with Donnarumma’s price tag halved.

In a separate report, MilanNews says that while Milan are keen to earn €50million from the goalkeeper’s sale, his asking price has gone down from €60million, which means he could be available for a bargain fee in the summer.

Donnarumma has also been linked with Chelsea in the past few days, the Blues reportedly considering a move as part of a triple raid on the Serie A.

The Italy international, who has so far made 16 appearances for his country, has kept 58 clean sheets in 166 Serie A outings.

In other news, United are reportedly willing to make Jude Bellingham one of the highest-paid teenagers in world football in a bid to bring him to Old Trafford.

Birmingham teenager Bellingham is also attracting interest from Bundesliga giants Borussia Dortmund.
