Donnarumma set for Manchester move at cut price

Donnarumma set for Manchester move at cut price

Gianluigi Donnarumma news

Donnarumma is expected to be a star for many seasons to come

AC Milan teenage sensation Gianluigi Donnarumma has reportedly told sources close to him that he wants to move to the English Premier League, and will turn down a new contract offer from the Serie A giants. Manchester United and Manchester City will now be on high alert over a possible bargain for the young goalkeeper. 

With just over a year remaining on his current contract, AC Milan are desperate to see him agree to a new long term deal. The Sun reports that Donnarumma has told friends that he will be leaving the San Siro for a move to the Premier League. To prevent the risk of losing him on a free next season, Milan may have to sell him at a cut price this summer, with a £20 million fee expected to be all it takes. 

Manchester United and Manchester City have been linked with the eighteen year old Italian, with both possibly needing a new first choice goalkeeper ahead of the new season. 

Manchester United's David de Gea has constantly been linked with a move to Real Madrid, whilst Manchester City's Claudio Bravo has struggled since his move to the club. 

Manchester City are said to be willing to pay Donnarumma £70,000 per week, but as the battle for a top four Premier League spot continues, Champions League football may be the decisive factor as to where a goalkeeper, who many expect to be at the top of the game for years to come, will end up.
