Birthday boy Gianluigi Donnarumma loving life at AC Milan

MILAN (AP) Last year Gianluigi Donnarumma bought himself on a video game for 5 million euros. Now, days before his 18th birthday, the Milan goalkeeper would probably command a fee of at least four times that sum in real life.

Donnarumma was just 16 years, eight months when he was handed his debut for Milan by then-coach Sinisa Mihajlovic, helping to beat Sassuolo 2-1.
