PSG confirm Donnarumma signing

Paris Saint-Germain announce the signing of Gianluigi Donnarumma just days after the goalkeeper led Italy to Euro 2020 glory.

The Italy international left AC Milan last month after his contract with the Serie A side expired.

Donnarumma, 22, penned an open letter to bid farewell to Milan fans a day before joining the French giants on a five-year contract.

Donnarumma is the fifth player to join PSG this summer.

Georginio Wijnaldum and Sergio Ramos were also signed in free transfers, while Achraf Hakimi was purchased from Inter in a deal worth €60 million (£52m/$71m), plus €10m (£9m/$12m) in add-ons.

Danilo Pereira also joined on a permanent deal from Porto after spending last season on loan.

“I am very happy to be part of this great club that is Paris Saint-Germain,” Donnarumma told PSG’s website.

“I feel ready to take on this new challenge, and continue to grow here. With PSG, I want to win as much as possible and give joy to the supporters.”

PSG president Nasser Al-Khelaïfi added: “We are pleased to welcome Gianluigi Donnarumma to Paris Saint-Germain.

“We congratulate him on his victory at Euro 2020, and his title as the best player of the competition.

“I know Gianluigi will receive a warm welcome from everyone at the club, including his team-mates, our staff and all the Parisian supporters.”

Donnarumma came through the Milan youth academy to make his senior debut in 2015 at the age of 16.

He became the Rossoneri´s first-choice goalkeeper that season and kept his place as the undisputed No.1 until his departure this summer.

Donnarumma made 251 appearances in all competitions for the San Siro side.

The goalkeeper was only 17 when he got his first cap for Italy and has now played 33 times for the Azzurri, playing a vital role in their Euro 2020 win.
