Donnarumma has been quoted as saying "I was born a Milan fan. It did not depend on one game but the passion for the Rossoneri,"

The young goalkeeper has impressed everyone with his performances, and has attracted the interests of the likes of Real Madrid, Chelsea, Juventus, Manchester United.

But his brother Antonio has said that Donnarumma has no plans of leaving Milan anytime soon, "He's not going to leave AC Milan at all,I talk with him every day. We don't talk about football too much, but he's happy at AC Milan, is a huge fan of the club and he's not going to leave in the future."

Now, he will set his eyes on the Scudetto, which Milan last won in 2010-11 and will be hoping to bring back Milan's glory days in Europe. Milan is the second most successful team with 7 trophies but last lifted the Champions League in 2007.
