AC Milan goalkeeper Gianluigi Donnarumma will cost interested clubs around £119million, according to his agent.

The 16-year-old 'keeper made his senior display for Milan earlier this season and he's already a client of Mino Raiola, who represents stars including Paul Pogba and Zlatan Ibrahimovic.

Most Expensive Goalkeeper

Raiola is adamant that Donnarumma will become the most expensive goalkeeper ever at one point in his future, and he's already stated he's worth over £100m despite only being 16-years-old.

Despite still being young, Donnarumma has made six senior appearances for Milan this season, and has become their regular number-one after a string of fine performances in between the sticks.

People in Italy have quickly labelled him the next Gianluigi Buffon, and his agent has backed the hype by claiming he could become the most expensive 'keeper of all time.

Premier League Interest

In recent weeks, Premier League duo Manchester United and Chelsea have both been interested in signing the goalkeeper, but it looks like they will have to look elsewhere, unless they are prepared to smash the transfer record.

Real Madrid broke the record when they signed Gareth Bale from Tottenham Hotspur for £85m, and according to Raiola, his client is worth even more than that.

Agent Reveals Valuation

"Donnarumma is like Modigliani [a famous Italian painter] and is worth €170m," talkSPORT reported via Sport.

"He has a great future ahead of him and is an amazing guy, who is liked by all.

"He is still very young, but can become a champion player."

United want to wrap up a deal before more clubs become interested and before his stock and value rises.
