Paris Saint-Germain have finally confirmed the signing of free agent Gianluigi Donnarumma after the goalkeeper left AC Milan.
Donnarumma decided to depart Milan, the team he came through the youth academy at, despite the fact that they confirmed a return to the Champions League with a second-placed finish last season.
The 22-year-old has had his say on the exit, implying that it was merely a career choice and insisting he is still attached to Milan, while PSG have now confirmed on their official website that the Italian goalkeeper has signed a five-year contract until 30 June 2026.
Technical director Paolo Maldini has now had his say on the parting of ways as he spoke to DAZN.
“He is a big loss for us even if we have signed a great goalkeeper. He grew up in our academy and seeing what he has done at Milan, the fact that the story is interrupted hurts a little. It is right to think about the past but the future is more fascinating,” he said (via MilanNews).
