Donnarumma is one of Europe’s most promising goalkeepers after breaking into the Milan side last season.
The 17-year-old’s fine form has led to talk he could leave the San Siro for a move to the Premier League.
His current contract expires in 2018 and, as of yet, he is yet to put pen to paper on a contract extension.
Manchester United could make a move for him if Real Madrid come calling for David De Gea.

Which goalkeeper has racked up the most clean sheets so far this season?
And Chelsea could do the same should Thibaut Courtois jump ship to Spain.
However, both giants could have to wait to land the Milan prodigy.
Italian website Calcio Mercato claim Donnarumma will delay any contract talks until his 18th birthday.
The Italy international will officially become an adult on February 25.
Manchester United could swoop for Donnarumma to replace David De Gea
His agent Mino Raiola – who sealed Paul Pogba’s world-record £89million move to United in the summer – will handle negotiations.
As well as United and Chelsea, Real and Juventus are also keen.
Real are on the lookout for a shot-stopper with Zinedine Zidane beginning to phase out Keylor Navas.
And Juventus want Donnarumma as a long-term replacement for 38-year-old Gianluigi Buffon.
