Italy goalkeeper Gianluigi Donnarumma has signed a 5-year deal with Paris Saint-Germain on a free transfer after leaving Serie A club AC Milan.

Italy goalkeeper Gianluigi Donnarumma has joined Paris St Germain on a free transfer after leaving Serie A club AC Milan, signing a five-year deal, the French Ligue 1 side said on Wednesday. Donnarumma, who was crowned Euro 2020 Player of the Tournament after Italy’s victory over England in the final, helped Milan finish second in Serie A last season to secure Champions League qualification for the first time since 2013-14.

The 22-year-old, who saved two penalties in the Euro 2020 final, heads to France on a free transfer from AC Milan. Donnarumma will be in competition with the experienced Keylor Navas for the goalkeeeper’s jersey.

“I am delighted to be part of this huge club," said Donnarumma in a statment released by PSG.

“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."
