Milan are set to be boosted by the return of Gianluigi Donnarumma after the goalkeeper tested negative for coronavirus.

Donnarumma, 21, missed a Serie A draw against Roma and Thursday’s Europa League victory over Sparta Prague after contracting COVID-19.

The goalkeeper, though, could return as soon as Sunday’s trip to Udinese after Milan confirmed the Italy international had tested negative.

Milan also announced Jens Petter Hauge and Matteo Gabbia had tested negative, though the latter will undergo further screening on Sunday.

“Gianluigi Donnarumma and Jens Petter Hauge, who had been asymptomatic, have tested negative following further testing,” a Milan statement read on Friday.

“The local health authorities have been informed and both players are authorised to return to training.”

Milan have made a fine start to the Serie A season, sitting top of the table after winning four and drawing one of their first five games.

Donnarumma has a 90.9 save percentage in four league games in 2020-21. His best in a Serie A campaign is 76.4 in 2016-17.
