Donnarumma announced his intention to quit Milan last summer ahead of a potential move to Serie A rivals Juventus.

But after immense pressure from angry fans, the teen changed his mind and ended up penning a new four-year deal instead.

The U-turn irked Raiola, who was hoping to cash in on yet another mega-money move.

And he has risked the wrath of AC Milan’s board yet again after telling Donnarumma he should depart the San Siro and take advantage of “important requests”.

“In Italy he’s number one. He’s worth £88million but he’s on a free transfer and is therefore a bargain.

“I’m negotiating with many clubs in England and Italy.

“I’ve spoken with Juventus, Roma, Napoli and Inter.”

Meanwhile, additional reports claim Napoli star Pepe Reina has agreed a free transfer to Milan this summer as Donnarumma’s No 2 – despite interest from Newcastle and former boss Rafa Benitez.
