Gianluigi Donnarumma has emerged as one of world’s hottest goalkeeping properties thanks to his impressive displays for AC Milan over the course of last year.
Donnarumma is seen as the future of the Italian football and a natural heir to his namesake Buffon, but his contract situation has been drawing plenty of attention lately. With just one year remaining in his AC Milan deal, Donnarumma was linked with Juventus, Manchester United and Real Madrid, but his love for Milan was thought to be enough to suggest the talented lad would stay.
A twist in the tale was confirmed this week as Donnarumma’s agent Mino Raiola claims the goalkeeper was met with hostility by AC Milan during contract negotiations and that he even received alleged death threats.
A deal is off and it is now a question who will end up grabbing this giant goalkeeping gem.
