Donnarumma showered with fake money during Italy U21 clash

Updated: 

Sunday's Euro Under-21 encounter between Italy and Denmark was temporarily halted after angry AC Milan fans showered goalkeeper Gianluigi Donnarumma with fake money during the game.

Milan recently announced that the 18-year-old has opted against signing a contract renewal, with his existing deal due to expire in 2018, and his decision to turn down EUR5million nett per season has not gone down well with the Rossoneri faithful.

Milan's Polish fan club showcased a banner reading "Dollarumma" during the match in Krakow to protest his alleged greed and they stepped it up a notch around the half-hour mark when they launched numerous fake bank notes at the keeper during a set piece.

The referee consequently saw no other option but to stop play for a moment in order to clear the pitch following the protests against Donnarumma.

Italy U-21 would eventually go on to record a 2-0 win after the restart, with Lorenzo Pellegrini and Andrea Petagna netting after the break.

Clubs such as Juventus, Real Madrid and Manchester United are all believed to be keeping a close eye on Donnarumma's situation at Milan, but sporting director Massimiliano Mirabelli stressed on Sunday they have no intention of selling the Italy international.
