Gianluigi Donnarumma made his Serie A debut barely one year ago.

On the 25th of October 2015, Sinisa Mihajlovic decided to bench Diego Lopez and start the 16-year-old goalkeeper who become the youngest goalkeeper ever to start a Serie A game (the second youngest shot stopper to make Serie A debut).

His debut in Italy’s top flight was only ruined by a mistake on Domenico Berardi’s free kick goal which helped Sassuolo to win the game, though the qualities of the U-21 Italy International have – rightly - never been put into doubt.

In his first 365 days as AC Milan’s senior goalkeeper, Donnarumma has become the youngest starter ever in a Milan derby, the first under-age goalkeeper to save a penalty kick in Serie A, the youngest player to feature with U-21 Italy national team and the youngest player to make debut with Italy national team.

Donnarumma has become the most popular player of AC Milan alongside Colombian hit-man Carlos Bacca.
His future at the club, however, could be under threat as the best European clubs have already made contact with Mino Raiola, the player’s agent, asking for the goalkeeper’s services.

An agreement between the two parties regarding a possible contract extension had been already found: € 2 million a year until 2019, but interests of top European clubs have convinced Raiola to raise the bar and ask even more money to put pen to paper on a new agreement. That will be the first job that the duo Fassone-Mirabelli will be tasked with.
