Donnarumma could be a target for Los Blancos if they fail to lure De Gea to the Bernabeu

Since breaking onto the footballing scene a few years ago, Donnarumma has constantly impressed fans with his ability and potential.

The 19-year-old has managed to clock up a total of 114 appearances for Gennaro Gattuso’s side, keeping 42 clean sheets in the process, a phenomenal record for a player of his age.

This campaign, the young shot-stopper has already managed to clock up 19 shut outs in a total of 42 appearances, meaning he keeps out the opposition around once every two games, a fantastic record.

If Madrid do miss out on De Gea, it could turn out to be a blessing in disguise if they manage to bring Donnarumma to the Santiago Bernabeu because of it.
