"That is the final decision", Fassone lamented.

Real Madrid former goalkeeper Diego López had to leave the club, because Donnarumma closed his path in the club.

The 18-year-old has made over 70 appearances for the Rossoneri since making a surprise breakthrough in October 2015 and many fine performances have attracted attention from high places.

Christian Abbiati is hopeful that Gianluigi Donnarumma will stay at AC Milan as talk builds that he has agreed a new contract.

Rossoneri chief executive Marco Fassone said that Donnarumma has made a "definitive decision" to not renew the contract. "

"I'm looking for a house in the city to live with my family.

". In that case he would arrive to replace Keylor Navas next summer, thus giving the club no reason to pursue David De Gea. However, with Donnarumma's decision now, they could be forced to sell the player for less than half that price, although he could still break the record for the most expensive goalkeeping signing in history.

He was the youngest goalkeeper to play for Italy at the age of just 17 years and 189 days.

He started off as a third choice keeper behind Diego Lopez and Christian Abbiati after his promotion into the first team squad.

Corriere dello Sport claim Real are interested in Donnarumma but they are not prepared to muscle in on a deal just yet.

Milan are determined to take control of the situation.

But it could also be that they make a move for Donnarumma next season and he becomes their new Iker Casillas.

Donnarumma's availability puts Juventus in a hard position, though, as they have already agreed to sign Wojciech Szczesny from Arsenal.
