Just days after his heroics for Italy at Euro 2020, Gianluigi Donnarumma signed for Paris Saint-Germain.
As a result of his performances for Italy at Euro 2020, Donnarumma was named Player of the Tournament by UEFA. He saved penalties from Jadon Sancho and Bukayo Saka as the Azzurri beat England on penalties in the final on Sunday. However, he certainly didn’t let his celebrations with his country slow done his next move at club level.
The 22-year-old signed a five-year deal at PSG on Wednesday, just three days after winning Euro 2020. In this case, he’d already announced earlier in the week that he was leaving AC Milan after his contract expired. For this reason, this move hasn’t come as a huge surprise.
