Italy Goalkeeper, Donnarumma, Joins PSG on Free Transfer

-

Paris St-Germain have completed the signing of Italy keeper Gianluigi Donnarumma on a free transfer.

The 22-year-old joins PSG after being named the player of the tournament as Italy won Euro 2020 on Sunday.

He saved two penalties as the Azzurri beat England in a shootout.

Donnarumma, who has signed a five-year deal at PSG, announced earlier this week he was leaving AC Milan after his contract expired.

"I am very happy to be part of this great club," he said.

"I feel ready to take on this new challenge, and continue to grow here.

"With Paris, I want to win as much as possible and give joy to the supporters."

Donnarumma has 33 caps for Italy and has been their first-choice keeper under head coach Roberto Mancini.

He made 251 appearance­s for Milan in all competitio­ns after earning his debut at the age of 16.

He played in all but one of the club's Serie A games in 2020-21, helping them finish second and securing a return to the Champions League after a seven-year absence.
