Reports: Why Real Madrid Could Snub Italy Wonderkid
Spanish giants Real Madrid could reportedly snub the chance to sign an Italian wonderkid they have been heavily linked with.
AC Milan goalkeeper Gianluigi Donnarumma is expected leave the Italian club after rejecting a new deal, and Los Blancos have emerged as one of the teams interested in securing his signature.
However, according to Diario Madridista, the Spanish giants are reluctant to target the 18-year-old because of his agent, Mino Raiola.
The club are reportedly wary of signing a player who works under Raiola, who took Zlatan Ibrahimovic to FC Barcelona in 2009 only for controversy to follow.
Los Blancos feel the agent's power behind the scenes could possibly lead to drama at some point – something they are keen to avoid.
Raiola has become a bit of an unpopular figure in recent times, with many believing he pushed Donnarumma to snub a new deal at Milan.
