The 18-year-old Donnarumma informed Milan this week he is not interested in signing a contract renewal and Madrid are believed to be keeping a close eye on the highly rated goalkeeper's situation at San Siro.

Speaking to Corriere della Sera, Juventus director Giuseppe Marotta said: "It is becoming increasingly hard for clubs to handle these situations".

AC Milan will not back down despite Gianluigi Donnarumma's recent "no" to their offer of a contract extension.

"Donnarumma is a great champion, a great guy and a Milan player", he told Sportitalia.

While we're nearly certain that he'll be walking out in a white strip at the Santiago Bernabeu in a few weeks time, for now, it's our duty to report that he "wants to leave". For us, Donnarumma is priceless. He is priceless and we will not sell him.

News is breaking this afternoon that Bianconeri director Beppe Moratta has confirmed that The Old Lady have officially entered the race to sign Donnarumma, who they see as Buffon's replacement when he likely retires when his contract expires, next summer.

Meanwhile, there is growing concern that the club's fallout with agent Mino Raiola could lead to them cutting all ties with him and his clients, as noted by Tuttosport.

"It is a definitive decision, made by the player".

"We were taken by surprise, as we had hoped Donnarumma would be the goalkeeper taking Milan into the future", he said - via BBC Sport. "Naturally, the decision leaves a bitter taste in the mouth, but now we have to go forward and Milan go forward", he added.
