Italy goalkeeper Donnarumma joins Paris Saint-Germain after Milan exit

Italy goalkeeper Gianluigi Donnarumma, the European champion, signed a five-year contract with Paris Saint-Germain on Wednesday.

The 22-year-old starred at Euro 2020 and made crucial saves in the penalty shootout as Italy beat England in the final.

Paris Saint-Germain said Donnarumma had signed a deal until the end of June 2026.

“I feel ready to take on this new challenge and continue to grow here,” Donnarumma said. “With Paris, I want to win as much as possible and bring joy to the fans.”

He was a free agent after leaving Milan, breaking into when he was 16 and making 251 appearances.

Five years ago, Donnarumma became the youngest goalkeeper to play for Italy at 17 years and 189 days old when he appeared against France.

Paris Saint-Germain lost the French title to Lille last season and strengthened his team in an attempt to persuade star Kylian Mbappe to agree to a new contract.

Paris Saint-Germain have signed veteran defender Sergio Ramos on a free transfer after playing 16 years with Spanish giants Real Madrid and bought right-back Achraf Hakimi from Inter Milan for a fee of 60 million euros ($71 million).
