According to the Daily Mail, the Blues have been joined by Premier League giants, Man United and Real Madrid in the chase for Donnarumma’s services, while Serie A champions, Juventus are also keeping tabs on the situation closely.

AC Milan supposedly offered Donnarumma improved contract with a yearly salary of £6m plus add-ons, however, his agent Mino Raiola is believed to be holding out for an annual wage of £10.2m for his client, otherwise he will run down his deal and seek pastures new this summer.

Donnarumma has already made 241 games for the Rossoneri across all competitions since his debut at the age of 16, and he has kept nine clean sheets in 27 Serie A games in the 2020-21 season.
