Gianluigi Donnarumma is arguably the most exciting young goalkeepers in football so it comes as no surprise that Chelsea are facing stern competition for his signature, The Sun reports.
The 18-year-old has shown his quality between the posts for three years since developing as AC Milan’s number one choice.
However, Spanish news outlet AS reports that French giants Paris Saint-Germain are linked with the Italian.
The Ligue 1 side are known to spend vast amounts of money on one player, having broken the world record transfer fee in a £200m deal to sign Neymar last summer.
No one would rule out the Parisans splashing the cash on another fantastic prospect. This may hinder Chelsea’s chances of signing Donnarumma with Thibaut Courtois’ future at the Blues still up in the air.
The goalkeeper is yet to sign an extension at Stamford Bridge but that could easily be done at the end of the season with the Belgian’s current deal expiring in two years time.
Our links with Donnarumma is likely to be pure speculation from The Sun in an attempt to add fuel on Courtois’ situation at Chelsea.
