Croatian champions Dinamo Zagreb are ahead of the likes of AC Milan, Chelsea and Red Bull Salzburg in Group E after the first set of games in the group.

ESPN Pundit Doubts Gianluigi Donnarumma’s Prospects Of Joining Chelsea

ESPN pundit Alejandro Moreno does not believe Gianluigi Donnarumma would fancy a move to Chelsea during the summer transfer window. The 19-year-old has been widely tipped to pursue a big-money switch away from the Rossoneri, should they fail to qualify for next season’s Champions League. A number of high-profile clubs including Real Madrid have been touted as potential candidates to pursue the Rossoneri graduate, but recent reports have suggested that the Blues have joined the race to sign the teenager.

The west London outfit are currently uncertain whether goalkeeper Thibaut Courtois would commit his future beyond June 2019, and this could potentially tempt them to sanction his exit during the summer rather than lose him on a free transfer at the end of next season. As a result, Donnarumma has emerged as one of the prime contenders to replace the Belgian, though Moreno does not feel the move will happen.
