The 18-year-old confirmed last week that he would not be renewing his contract with Milan, putting a number of leading European clubs on the alert. Juventus, Real Madrid, Manchester United and Paris Saint-Germain have all shown an interest.

His decision has clearly attracted strong opinions in his home country as bundles of fake dollar bills were thrown by Italy fans towards him during their Group C match in Krakow. Milan have described themselves as “disheartened” by Donnarumma’s decision.

Italy beat Denmark 2-0 thanks to second-half goals from Lorenzo Pellegrini, with a spectacular overhead volley, and a late strike from Andrea Petagna.

Earlier on Sunday, Germany beat the Czech Republic 2-0 with goals from Max Meyer and Serge Gnabry.
