Gianluigi Donnarumma was reduced to tears in the AC Milan dressing room after supporters unveiled a brutal banner describing their loathing of the Italian goalkeeper.
The 18-year-old featured in Milan’s comfortable 3-0 Coppa Italia victory over Verona on Wednesday night, but following their routine win, fans unleashed a scathing attack on Donnarumma.
The banner, stretching across three whole sections of the San Siro, took a cruel dig at the keeper’s ‘parasite’ brother, as well as insisting their patience had run out.
It read: ‘Psychological violence by giving you €6million-a-season & signing your parasite brother? It’s time to leave…our patience with you is over!’
The message not only stunned the teenager, but left him distraught in the dressing room, with captain Leonardo Bonucci attempting to console the tearful youngster.
Bonucci, one of the £100million spending spree in the summer, embraced his team-mate as Donnarumma responds with a grateful pat on the shoulder of the Milan skipper.
The reports coming from Italy’s Gazetta dello Sport on Tuesday revealed the goalkeeper was ready to quit the Rossoneri and asked his agent to cancel the deal he signed only last summer, claiming he was forced into the agreement.
According to the reports, Donnarumma is looking to activate a clause in his new deal that could see his contract ‘annulled’.
With the speculation circulating, it has been claimed Real Madrid and Paris Saint-Germain are lying in wait to swoop for the reportedly unsettled keeper.
