Manchester United Prepared To Offer £65 Million For David De Gea Replacement
With rumours on David De Gea's future still persistent, there's talk of Manchester United having a big-money replacement in mind if he does leave Old Trafford this summer.
Fresh reports from Italy say that United are prepared to offer AC Milan some big bucks for the services of their prize possession Gianluigi Donnarumma.
The 18-year old has already firmly established himself as the number one goalkeeper at the San Siro and producing a series of strong performances in between the sticks as Milan secured qualification for next season's Champions League.
The Rossoneri are desperate to tie him down to a new deal, as he has just a year remaining on his current contract with the club.
But Mino Raiola will no doubt be pushing for a healthy package for his client and there have been a plethora of rumours involving Italy's next top goalkeeping prospect.
Earlier this month, Mike McGrath from The Sun reported that the Italian has told friends that he is moving to the Premier League in the summer, with both Manchester clubs keen.
