EURO 2020 Participant of the Match Gianluigi Donnarumma has signed a five-year deal and joined PSG on a free switch following the expiration of his contract at AC Milan, the Ligue 1 membership introduced on Wednesday.
Donnarumma had lengthy been linked with a transfer to Paris Saint-Germain as soon as it grew to become clear he wasn’t more likely to re-sign with AC Milan, the place he debuted at age 16 and held down the beginning job for the following six seasons. A little bit of fast math reveals that Donnarumma is, in reality, a European champion (the place he grew to become a penalty-shootout hero within the semifinal and last) and arguably the most effective goalkeeper on the earth on the age of twenty-two — from PSG’s web site:
“I’m delighted to be a part of this enormous membership. I really feel able to tackle this new problem and proceed to develop right here. With Paris, I wish to win as a lot as attainable and to deliver pleasure to the supporters.”
The arrival of Donnarumma virtually definitely implies that incumbent no. 1 goalkeeper, Keylor Navas, will both be relegated to backup duties, as was the case at Actual Madrid when Thibaut Courtois was signed in 2018, or go away the membership altogether searching for a beginning job elsewhere.
PSG Chairman and CEO Nasser Al-Khelaifi has mentioned the next:
“We’re delighted to welcome Gianluigi Donnarumma to Paris Saint-Germain. We congratulate him on his UEFA EURO 2020 success and successful Participant of the Match.
“I do know Gianluigi will obtain a heat Parisian welcome from everybody on the membership, together with his teammates, our employees and all of the supporters.”
