Gianluigi Donnarumma’s AC Milan future has been thrown into doubt once again after a section of supporters vented their anger at the 18-year-old goalkeeper.

Milan supporters unveiled a banner which translates as ‘Our Patience is Over, Time to Leave’.

AC Milan supporters expressed their feelings towards goalkeeper Gianluigi Donnarumma.

However, it isn’t just Donnarumma’s future which could be affected as any potential departure could lead the Italian to Spain or England.

This could affect Chelsea number one Thibaut Courtois and how long he remains at the club for. Real Madrid have targeted both Courtois and Manchester United keeper David De Gea for some time now, however have always maintained their interest in Donnarumma.

The Italian was seen as Iker Casillas’ long-term replacement but nothing ever materialised, particularly after the 18-year-old signed a new five-year deal with Milan.

Thibaut Courtois took over as Chelsea number one from Petr Cech following a stint in Spain with Atletico Madrid.

If Donnarumma opted for a move to Real Madrid, it would all but end the speculation around Courtois and De Gea, despite the Belgian admitting he could head back to Spain one day due to family reasons.

But a move to England for the AC Milan goalkeeper could then pave the way for Courtois to move back to Spain. But would a deal like that go down well with the Chelsea supporters?

Donnarumma certainly has the potential at only 18, and could be a long-term solution for however many managers pass through the doors at Chelsea.
