Highly-rated young goalkeeper Gianluigi Donnarumma is set to snub interest from Manchester United in order to remain at AC Milan where he will sign a new £1million-a-year deal, according to the Daily Express.
The 16-year-old made history last month by becoming the youngest ever goalkeeper to start a game in the Italian top flight, and has since gone on to make four more appearances.
He has been on the radar of several European big hitters – including United – who were being tipped to make a move for the talented teenager when the January transfer window opens.
However, a report in Italy is now claiming that Donnarumma will sign a new deal to stay with Milan that will see him earn a huge wage boost going from £160,000 to £1m-a-year.
Standing at 6’5, his prodigious talent has seen him compared to Serie A legend Gianluigi Buffon.
Milan boss Sinisa Mihajlovic admits he’s not put off by his inexperience, and has tipped him to become a first-team regular following the injury to Diego Lopez.
“I don’t look at age, I look at whether someone is good or not,” insisted Mihajlovic.
“The lad trains well and right now he gives me more confidence.”
