Gianluigi Donnarumma could be the next goalkeeper of Real Madrid. Although David de Gea is still the favourite to arrive to the Spanish capital, the Italian footballer has also an option to sign for Los Blancos in this summer or the next year.
Donnarumma is only 19 years old and he has just finished his second full season with AC Milan. The big Italian club got the qualification to the Europa League after an odd year, because they started very well but struggled at the end of the season. Donnarumma was one of the best of the team, perhaps the best, showing his skills in the goal.
His contract expires in June 2018 and he has rejected up to three offers to renew his contract, according to the Italian newspaper La Gazzetta dello Sport. This situation has triggered the rumours with a possible transfer in the summer, especially now that some big European teams are looking for a top goalkeeper. Manchester United and Real Madrid are among them.
Besides, Donnarumma’s agent is Mino Raiola, the same representing Paul Pogba. Last year, he was able to talk with Real Madrid, but he managed to sell the French midfielder to the Red Devils for a record fee. Now, he also has a good relationship with Florentino Pérez, so he might be able to put the Italian goalkeeper in the list.
There is a big question mark with the future goalkeeper of Real Madrid. Keylor Navas ended the season very well and he has the support of the squad, but he made several mistakes during the season, opening a debate around him. Besides, the Costa Rican player said that he was going to compete with anyone, so he’s not willing to move from Real Madrid.
Florentino Pérez still thinks that David De Gea could be the best fit for this position. However, the signing would be very expensive. Now, Real Madrid bosses need to decide whether Keylor Navas is the best goalkeeper for Real Madrid or De Gea or Donnarumma would be a best fit.
