Agent: AC Milan keeper Donnarumma work of art

The agent of Gianluigi Donnarumma has sung the praises of the 16 year-old goalkeeper.

Donnarumma is being likened to Juventus icon Gigi Buffon.

“He could become a work of art," Mino Raiola told Radio Sportiva.

“He has all the qualities to become one. He's a work of art under construction, he has an extraordinary talent and approach to the profession.

“Is he like Buffon? It's only in Italy that he made his debut very young, because in some other country it wouldn't be that way.

“[Petr] Cech and [Thibaut] Courtois were already playing at 16 or 17.

“I think the important signal that Donnarumma could give, with [Coach Sinisa] Mihajlovic and all of Milan is this: open up to young people and give space to great talents, otherwise we'll lose them."
