The Daily Mail, meanwhile, reports that Donnarumma has insisted he is committed to Milan, where his contract is due to expire in 2021.

“The Rossoneri colours mean a lot to me, because I grew up here. I have always been a Milan fan and I can’t help but give my best for this shirt,” he is quoted as saying.

Meanwhile, German newspaper Bild have claimed that Chelsea have lined up Bayern Munich’s Manuel Neuer as a possible replacement for Kepa.
