Paris Saint Germain have announced the signing of Gianluigi Donnarumma on a four-year deal.
The 22-year-old, fresh from winning the EURO 2020 tournament arrived at the club on Wednesday, and put pen-to-paper a deal until 2026, having agreed to sign a few weeks ago.

The former AC Milan shot-stopper became a free agent after his contract with the Italian side ran out at the end of the 2020/21 season.
He will be vying for PSG’s number one spot with former Real Madrid keeper Kaylor Navas, who is understood to be unhappy with the towering Italian’s arrival.
“I am delighted to be part of this huge club. 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.” Donnarumma said.
He was awarded the Player of the Tournament at the just-concluded UEFA EURO tournament, having guided the Azzurri to their first win in decades.
