Chelsea & AC Milan
The Tuesday in Corriere dello Sport, there’s an eye-catching story linking Chelsea and AC Milan.
Neither Chelsea nor AC Milan will be playing Champions League football next season.
Instead both clubs will be competing in the Europa League following tricky 2017-18 campaigns.
It’s fair to say that Chelsea and AC Milan are looking to reclaim former glories, which could see the sides conduct significant business this summer.
Gianluigi Donnarumma to Chelsea
According to Corriere dello Sport, Italian international goalie Gianluigi Donnarumma could move to Chelsea this summer.
Donnarumma is just 19-years-old. He’s now the Italian number one after Gigi Buffon’s retirement, while he’s also played over 100 Serie A games.
Recent months have seen plenty of speculation that Donnarumma could leave the San Siro. Along with his agent Mino Raiola, stories continue to link Donnarumma with moves to some of Europe’s biggest clubs.
Does a move to Chelsea make sense?
Very possibily, especially if the Blues end up losing Thibaut Courtois. The Belgian stopper has been tipped to move to Spain sooner rather than later.

Alvaro Morata to AC Milan
Could Alvaro Morata leave Chelsea to join AC Milan after just one season in the Premier League?
Twelve months on from his 75 million pound move from Juventus, Morata has yet to live up to expectations at Stamford Bridge.
A combination of injuries and poor form drew some negative headlines for Morata in 2017-18.
Corriere dello Sport are now floating the idea that Chelsea and AC Milan could swap Donnarumma for Morata.
Donnarumma is said to command a 70 million euro transfer fee, which is a similar figure to what Chelsea would demand for Morata.
Yet, it’s worth noting that swap deals rarely come to pass in modern football.
