Chelsea consider £30m bid for Italian wonderkid to replace Real Madrid target

Chelsea have made AC Milan wonderkid Gianluigi Donnarumma their top summer target if Thibaut Courtois departs at the end of the season, according to reports from the Daily Mail.

Donnarumma has been heavily linked with a move away from the San Siro in recent weeks, with Manchester United also reportedly eyeing the 17-year-old goalkeeper.

Despite his young age, Donnarumma has already played 22 games in the Italian top flight, and has become one of the most coveted youngsters on the continent.

And the Blues see the Rossoneri shot-stopper as the perfect player to replace Courtois, who is being courted by Real Madrid after their failed attempts to sign David de Gea from Man United.

Milan have come out to reveal that they have no intention of selling Donnarumma anytime soon, but with the club once again in financial difficulty, they may find a £30million bid from interested clubs hard to turn down.

Italy manager Antonio Conte, who is expected to take charge of Chelsea after Euro 2016, is a big fan of Donnarumma and may try to persuade the Rossoneri to sell their star asset.
