Teenage goalkeeper Gianluigi Donnarumma had fake money thrown at him during Italy's European Under-21 Championship opener against Denmark by fans seemingly upset by his decision not to renew his contract with AC Milan.

The 18-year-old, who has made more than 70 first-team appearances for Milan since his debut in 2015, looks to be on his way out of San Siro after it was revealed by the Rossoneri on Thursday that he would not be committing to a new deal.

That will have alerted many of Europe's top clubs, with the likes of Real Madrid, Juventus and Manchester United all reportedly interested in his services, and appears to have incurred the wrath of some supporters.

As well as scores of fake dollar bills being thrown at the teenager during Italy Under-21s' 2-0 victory over Denmark in Krakow, there was also a banner behind his goal which read 'Dollarumma'.

Milan director Marco Fassone told a press conference, in quotes carried by La Gazzetta dello Sport, on Thursday afternoon: ''We are disheartened. (Donnarumma's agent) Mino Raiola has conveyed to me Donnarumma's decision not to renew. It's his final decision.

"This decision, taken by the player and his agent, makes us sad but we must move forward, Milan must move forward."

The Castellammare di Stabia-born player has 12 months remaining on his deal with Milan.
