    Paper talk: Chelsea face double transfer blow, Prem duo face competition for starlet

    Chelsea target Gianluigi Donnarumma is not going to leave AC Milan in the future, the player’s brother has told Il Corriere dello Sport. The Blues had been linked with welcoming the player’s services as the Premier League giants are reported to be preparing a huge offer to sign the 17-year-old promise.

    The Italian shot-stopper’s brother Antonio, however, has claimed that Donnarumma is not going to leave his favourite club in the future.

    He’s not going to leave AC Milan at all. I talk with him every day. We don’t talk about football too much, but he’s happy at AC Milan, is a huge fan of the club and he’s not going to leave in the future.”

    “Buffon, however, is the number one in the world. Gigio can be Buffon’s heir but not at Juventus, Gigio is a huge AC Milan fan and is not going to leave the club. He has an incredible personality. He never seems to be too worried really. I had been playing for AC Milan when I was 15, it was an incredible emotionLeaving home when you are young is never easy, but one has to make sacrifices in order to succeed.”

    The words of Antonio Donnarumma, however, are not going to cool the interest of Chelsea, Juventus and Real Madrid as AC Milan have yet to find agreement over the player’s contract extension.

    Two more Premier League clubs could face transfer blows in the future as Juventus are said to have scouted Liverpool and Manchester City target Mahmoud Dahoud. The Old Lady’s director of sport Fabio Paratici was in Germany to watch Borussia Monchengladbach-Real Madrid yesterday night and according to Tuttosport, the 20-year-old midfielder impressed the bianconeri director.

    Dahoud’s contract with the Bundesliga side expires in 2018 but a clause included in his contract leaves him free to leave the club for just € 10 million at the end of the season.
