In recent weeks, Chelsea have been strongly linked to a move for AC Milan goalkeeper Gianluigi Donarumma. However, according to reports in Italy, the “blues” may miss, as Juventus enters the race for the highly rated shot-stopper.
It is hard to forget that Donarumma is still only 22 years old.
After joining Milan’s youth academy all the way in 2013, Donnarumma continued to take part in the huge 247 matches for senior first teams in all competitions.
Although he is about to become a legend of the club, there are growing fears that the talented young Italian may move forward.
As his contract is due to expire at the end of this season and no agreement has yet been reached to extend his stay, Rossoneri fans are still sweating for the long-term future of their star.
Chelsea received advice to try to attract the Italian from Milan after the opening of the summer transfer window.
However, according to a recent report by Calciomercato, the future of the 22-year-old may lie a little closer to home.
Andrea Pirlo’s Juventus is said to be the newest club to compete in the Donnarumma landing race.
The outlet claims that the Old Lady “continues to investigate” the situation of the goalkeeper – assuming that the club has been negotiating with Mino Raiola – the player’s agent.
Of course, Juventus is preparing a “large-scale attack on the transfer market”, and Donarumma is expected to be high on the club’s summer wish list.
