The 18-year-old goalkeeper made his professional debut as a 16-year-old for AC Milan. The Italian is also a full international so it wouldn’t be like he would be thrown straight into professional football without any prior experience.
The youngster is seen as the heir to Buffon’s reign as the Italian #1, so he is highly rated in is home country.
If Willy Caballero was to be offered a new deal or if Claudio Bravo was to remain at the club he may have to bide his time at the club and serve as back up, but he would be sure to get his chance to shine in England.
Alternative signing: Ederson (Benfica) – The 23-year-old could be another option that would be a signing for the long-term. The Sun have also reported that City already have an agreement with Benfica, with £30million being the agreed transfer fee.
