Milan President Silvio Berlusconi insists Gianluigi Donnarumma “will be our goalkeeper for the next 20 years.”
The shot-stopper has become a Serie A regular at the tender age of 16, pushing former Real Madrid star Diego Lopez on to the San Siro bench.
This alerted the attention of top clubs including Manchester United, Chelsea and Barcelona.
“He is a really good lad, very solid in his physique, mentality and character. I think he can be a symbol of the future Milan,” President Berlusconi told Mediaset Premium.
“At the age of 16 he is admired by all and will not leave Milan, no matter what offer comes in.
“He will be the goalkeeper of Milan for the next 20 years.”
