Now Milan have only two ways - either to show integrity and keep Donnarumma to the end of the contract, either before the closure of the summer transfer window to sell the goalkeeper in order not to lose him for free.
After announcing he won't be signing a contract extension with AC Milan, Gianluigi Donnarumma is reportedly keen to join Real Madrid. The player evaluated it and made some evaluations that were not just economic.
The teenage prodigy has emerged as one of Europe's hottest goalkeeping prospects, but there has been continued doubts over his future with agent Mino Raiola flying in to Milan ahead of a deadline for him to commit his future.
"I want people to realise, and all agents to realise, that we are talking about Milan here and not any old club", he told Mediaset Premium.
David De Gea is believed to have held off on contract talks with Manchester United whilst talk of Real Madrid's interest continues, but he may now find himself missing out on his dream return to the Spanish capital, should Real decide to target the young Italian.
Gianluigi Donnarumma will not sign a renewal with AC Milan, the Serie A club have confirmed. "We were caught off guard because we had hoped that Donnarumma will be the goalkeeper "Milan" for a long time", - quotes the words of Fassone official site "Milan". "Naturally, the decision leaves a bitter taste in the mouth, but now we have to go forward and Milan go forward". They'll be approached by what has been conservatively estimated as anywhere around 11 teams to take on his services, but top rivals Juventus are sure to be near the top of the list of interested parties.
