Manchester City are interested in bringing AC Milan goalkeeper Gianluigi Donnarumma to the Etihad Stadium over the summer, according to the Daily Mail.
The report claims that City are prepared to offer £30 million to bring in the 18-year-old, who has just one year remaining on his contract with the Serie A giants.

Milan are going through something of a barren spell in their history and have missed out on Champions League football again this term, currently residing in sixth spot in the table.
Citizens boss Pep Guardiola will hope that the chance to take part in Europe’s premier club competition can sway Donnarumma, who has had another solid campaign between the sticks.
The Italian has kept 11 league clean sheets and made his national team debut against France back in September, coming on as a half-time substitute for Gianluigi Buffon.
The goalkeeping position at City has proven problematic for Guardiola this season, with summer signing Claudio Bravo looking shaky at best and Willy Caballero generally not considered good enough for the number one jersey.
England’s Joe Hart was controversially loaned out in August but an error-strewn year with Torino means his stock if anything is now lower that when he departed Manchester.
Bringing in a dependable keeper will be key to City’s success in 2017-18 and Donnarumma is someone who could hold down the position in the long term.
