Teenage goalkeeping sensation Gianluigi Donnarumma is claiming he suffered "moral abuse" at the time of renewing his AC Milan contract last summer and wants to cancel the deal, according to Italian press reports on Tuesday.

The 18-year-old's agent Mino Raiola has reportedly asked ­Milan bosses to cancel the contract on the grounds of "psychological pressure" suffered by Donnarumma to renew last July, Corriere della Sera ­reported. Raiola and the player's lawyers were reportedly not present in the room at the time of the signature.

And the newspaper claims that the teenager - regarded as one of the best young goalkeepers in Europe and a successor to Gianluigi Buffon on the Italian national team - has sent a letter to Milan bosses outlining his demands. If the agreement is canceled, Donnarumma would return to his former contract which expires on June 30, 2018 and would be free to join another club.

Paris Saint-Germain are reportedly in talks with Raiola, regarding a transfer to France for the Italian starlet, should Milan fail to clinch Champions League soccer next season.
