Manchester United and Chelsea target could be free to leave AC Milan in the summer

Gianluigi Donnarumma edges towards exit at Serie A giants; waiting game for Sergio Aguero.

SOCCER: Manchester United and Chelsea target Gianluigi Donnarumma is still some way from an agreement on a new contract with AC Milan, according to Tuttosport via MilanNews.

The 23-year-old goalkeeper is out of contract in the summer and is reportedly chasing a €10million a year deal, running for two years. However, Milan are offering €7.5million and want to tie Donnarumma to a five-year contract.

United and Chelsea are both waiting in the wings and are reported to have already had discussions with Donnarumma's agent Mino Raiola.

Donnarumma will be afforded the perfect audition for a move to Old Trafford on Thursday when United host Milan in a Europa League round-of-16 first-leg tie.

The Rossoneri number one is 9/2 to keep a clean sheet with Sky Bet, whom also offer odds of 11/1 that United are awarded a penalty and miss it.

United are 2/5 to progress, with Milan at 7/4.

Pep talk with Sergio Aguero won't come until season-end

SOCCER: Pep Guardiola is set to sit down with Sergio Aguero at the end of the season in a bid to get him to extend his stay at Manchester City for another 12 months, so say The Star.

"We have to be calm," said Guardiola. "The club will speak to his agent to discuss the situation and we are going to talk at the end of the season."

However, Guardiola's lack of urgency on the matter could open the door for a move with Aguerro entertaining a number of offers from clubs in Europe and mulling over a return to South America to end his career in his homeland.

Barcelona remain favourites to land the striker should he leave the Etihad in the summer at 6/4 with Sky Bet.

A return to Argentina and any Argentine Primera club is 4/1.

Now blessed with a spirit of solidarity, England, who have lost two of their first three fixtures, are 5/6 with Bet365 to return to winning ways against France next time out.

Leaders Wales remain firm favourites for the Six Nations crown and are priced at 4/5 with William Hill. England can be backed at 100/1.
