In Focus: Donnarumma could have an exciting future at Man United

As reported by Diario Gol, Manchester United are set for some big changes between the sticks this summer, potentially part of a three club goalkeeping switch that is sure to create lots of discussion.

What’s the story?

After six seasons and 269 appearances for the Red Devils, it appears David De Gea’s time at the club could be coming to an end.

Diario Gol reckon his much discussed move to Real Madrid is still progressing with the goalkeeper having put his house in Manchester up for sale in April.

However, in a move that may soften the blow for United fans, they’re said to be in the market for Gianluigi Donnarumma, AC Milan’s teenage wonderkid. The report says that he’s been offered to United by his agent and he could be the man Jose Mourinho turns to, to fill what would become a problem position.

The future

Despite being just 18 years of age, Donnarumma has already made more than 70 appearances for Milan and has also won 4 caps for Italy. It’s very clear he has a lot of potential in the game.

Last season he helped his club to 12 clean sheets, also shutting out Germany for the Italians in a 0-0 draw last November.

With Real Madrid reportedly set to land David De Gea then United need the next top prospect to arrive in Manchester and fill his boots. Even though he is still just a teenager, Donnarumma represents such a prospect. There’s arguably no other young goalkeeper in Europe garnering more attention than the Italian.

As Mourinho begins plans to move his era at Old Trafford into a higher gear, the young AC Milan shot-stopper could be a key part of it all.
