Italy’s Donnarumma joins PSG on 5-year contract

Paris, Jul 14 (EFE).- Italian goalkeeper Gianluigi Donnarumma has joined Paris Saint-Germain on a five-year contract, the Ligue 1 club said Wednesday.

Donnarumma, one of the heroes of Italy’s title-winning Euro 2020 run, was a free agent as his contract with AC Milan had expired.

“I am delighted to be part of this huge club,” the 22-year-old said in comments cited in the PSG website. “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 to bring joy to the supporters,” he added.

“We are delighted to welcome Gianluigi Donnarumma to Paris Saint-Germain,” club Chairman and CEO Nasser Al-Khelaifi said. “We congratulate him on his UEFA EURO 2020 success and winning Player of the Tournament.”

The keeper played 243 matches with AC Milan across all competitions during his six seasons at the Serie A side and made his debut with the Azzurri before his 18th birthday.

Last week, PSG confirmed the signing of a pair of defenders: Real Madrid legend Sergio Ramos and Morocco international Achraf Hakimi. EFE
