Watching Thibaut? Real Madrid in Raiola talks for AC Milan keeper Donnarumma

Thibaut Courtois' future at Real Madrid is again in doubt.

In Italy, it's claimed Real are working the Serie A transfer market to find a new goalkeeper.

Sportmediaset says Real are eyeing Juventus keeper Wojciech Szczesny - though the player they're prioritising is AC Milan's Gigio Donnarumma.

Real president Florentino Perez is in talks with Donnarumma's agent, Mino Raiola, about bringing the Italy international to Madrid for next season. Florentino knows Donnarumma has refused to consider new contract talks with Milan. His current deal expires in 2021.

Just last month, Raiola revealed: "My relations with Real Madrid are very good. I am in contact with José Angel (Sanchez, managing director) and I like to chat with him about football or about FIFA because his opinion interests me.

"I have great hopes that one day I can bring a great footballer to Real Madrid. Today I have (Alphonso) Areola but it is a somewhat failed operation because it is a loan. I want to bring a footballer and I will try this summer. It would be a source of pride for me and my footballers because Real Madrid is a big club."
