The 22-year-old goalkeeper, who joined Milan at the age of 14, has already made over 200 appearances for the Italian side after making his Serie A debut aged 16 years and 242 days.
He is already considered one of the best in the world in his position, but some fans are far from happy with his current situation at Rossoneri.
Donnarumma has been heavily linked with a move to Juventus in recent months, with his contract is set to expire at the end of the season.
In addition to rumours over his future, Milan will face The Old Lady in a crucial Serie A clash on Sunday night.
Milan and Juventus are currently level on points in the league in fourth and fifth position and this game in particular could be a huge factor in who finishes in the all-important top four.
With just four games remaining in Serie A for both clubs, some fans fear the match is a conflict of interest for Donnarumma.
In fact, a group of so called 'ultras' turned up outside the Milanello Sports Centre and told the 22-year-old to not feature in the upcoming clash unless he planned to sign a new deal, according to ESPN.
It is also believed that the ultras were unhappy with Donnarumma's actions following the club's 3-0 defeat to Lazio at the end of last month - and mentioned that situation as well as the links with Juventus.
The boyhood Rossoneri fan walked to the centre of the pitch at full-time and had a deep chat with close friend Pepe Reina, before swapping shirts with the former Liverpool man.
This sparked an angry backlash from supporters, who were fuming with his lack of sportsmanship following a heavy loss.

AC Milan technical director and club legend Paulo Maldini was forced to make a statement following the incident involving Donnarumma.
"It is important to firmly reiterate that no one outside of Milan can decide who plays and who renews," Maldini told ANSA. "Certain choices are up to the coach for the pitch and the club for contractual matters.
"Every single negotiation for renewals is now frozen until the end of the season, to allow the team to focus solely on the league. In the meantime, we will continue to protect our players as we always have.
"The Milan fans, up to now exemplary in supporting the team, must understand that at this moment, the players need serenity and concentration to face the next matches that will be decisive."
In responses to Milan ultras meeting with Donnarumma on Saturday, Maldini stated all negotiations for extensions will be stopped until the end of season so players can just focus on finishing in a CL spot
