Manchester United targeting £40m rated goalkeeper
Manchester United will look to sign this £40m rated goalkeeper from under the noses of Manchester City as Jose Mourinho makes contingency plans should David De Gea leave the club.
The Spanish keeper has been the subject of interest from Real Madrid for many years now, and could still move in the coming window.
Now, the Red Devil’s could have lined up his replacement with AC Milan’s highly rated goalkeeper Gianluigi Donnarumma on their radar.
The Italian turned 18 on Saturday and has amassed an incredible 55 first team appearances for Milan at such a tender age.
Due to the players current ability and immense potential, he would not be sold for cheap, nor would AC Milan have a need to sell one of their biggest ever talents.
That could leave Manchester United with no option but to fork out an enormous fee for the player should De Gea look to move this summer.

Manchester City were set to move for the goalkeeper due to Claudio Bravo and Willy Caballero’s worrying form.
The Argentine made yet another mistake against Monaco in the Champions League but did save a penalty to make up for it.
Regardless, the two Manchester clubs could go face to face for Donnarumma and time will tell if he has to choose one or the other.
