One of Europe's most wanted has taken himself off the market!
AC Milan goalkeeper Gigi Donnarumma has reaffirmed his commitment to the club despite rumours linking him with a summer exit from the San Siro, per Sky.
Donnarumma, 18, has shot to fame for the Rossoneri over the past year or so, becoming the most exciting goalkeeping talent in Europe and Italy’s natural heir to his namesake Gianluigi Buffon.
With his contract expiring in a year, clubs are believed to be queueing up for his signature. Manchester United, Real Madrid and Juventus are just three interested parties.
The player himself has now spoken out on his future, insisting he wants to stay and build his life in Milan.
“‘Everyone knows that my wish is to stay at Milan,” he said. “I’m looking for a house in the city to live with my family.

“I’m calm, all the parties involved know the decision I’ve made. I’m very much tied to these colours.”
United’s interest in Donnarumma was said to be particularly genuine, with David de Gea also a target for Real Madrid.
