Gianluigi Donnarumma wants to succeed Manchester United goalkeeper David de Gea as the highest paid goalkeeper in the world, but is happy to negotiate reduced terms to remain at Milan - even though talks over a new contract have reached an impasse.

Donnarumma turns 22 this month but has already clocked up nearly 250 appearances for Milan, having broken regularly into the side as a fresh-faced 16-year-old back in 2015.

His current contract at San Siro expires at the end of this season, and although he has previously expressed a desire to stay at the club, the uncertainty of the situation could potentially allow him to be poached as a free agent by any number of interested clubs.
