Milan Coach Sinisa Mihajlovic is reportedly ready to make 16-year-old Gianluigi Donnarumma the youngster goalkeeper ever to appear in Serie A.
The Serbian Coach is believed to be considering replacing Diego Lopez with the youngster, who would beat the age record set by a 17-year-old Gianluigi Buffon.
Tuttosport has reported today that the relationship between Mihajlovic and Lopez has deteriorated and that Donnarumma will start in Wednesday’s ‘Trofeo Berlusconi’ match against Inter.
However, Gazzetta dello Sport expects the young goalkeeper to be promoted to number one for the Serie A match against Sassuolo this weekend, which reportedly could be crucial for Mihajlovic’s future as Coach.
What Donnarumma lacks in years, he makes up for in height, as the Italy Under-17 international has an imposing 6 foot 4 inch frame that makes him a formidable presence.
