SanguineSimmopsSanguine Don't know what sort of contract Donnarumma has at Milan, but I'm surprised his name doesn't come up more. Fiorentina's Alban Lafont too - who would surely be France's keeper by now if he didn't have Areola in the way.
Edit: just read Lafont has had a slightly dodgy time of it in the last year.
But yeah, Donnarumma - 21 years old, already has 16 Italy caps and has been first choice at Milan for four years. He'll pass 200 club appearances soon (193), and doesn't turn 22 until February.
oxf*rd hell if he keeps that up for 16 years which is very conceivable looking at Buffon at 40+, he will be well over 1000 games
Yep, as a comparison Buffon was around 50 appearances behind at this stage of his career, having established himself as Juve's first choice just before he turned 19, whereas Donnarumma was a year and a bit earlier. He'll need Milan to get better though if he is really going to rack the appearances up - he has played just one season so far in European competition. They are only just hanging on to a Europa League qualifying round spot at the moment, by a point.
He already tried to leave them once a couple of years ago, supporters turned on him. Can't see him being there more than another season.
