Gianluigi Donnarumma ‘completes Paris Saint-Germain medical’ just hours after keeping yet another clean sheet for Italy against Wales at Euro 2020… with goalkeeper set to sign FIVE-YEAR deal to join Mauricio Pochettino’s side
- Gianluigi Donnarumma’s move to Paris Saint-Germain is nearing completion
- The 22-year-old underwent a medical on Monday morning in a Rome hospital
- This was just hours after he kept a third straight clean sheet for Italy at the Euros
- Donnarumma is set to leave AC Milan and sign a five-year deal at PSG
The 22-year-old played for Italy on Sunday night as they beat Wales 1-0 and is yet to concede a goal at Euro 2020 as Roberto Mancini’s side qualified for the last 16 in impressive fashion.
Donnarumma was given permission to travel to Rome’s Sant’Andrea hospital on Monday morning, and according to Fabrizio Romano the medical has now been completed and the official announcement will follow in the coming days.

The Italian goalkeeper will sign a five year deal at PSG through to June 2026, as he leaves the club he has been at since the age of 14.
Sky Sports reportedly earlier this month that the Italian will earn £10.3m a year plus add-ons as he benefits from being a free agent.
It remains to be seen how Mauricio Pochettino will use his options between the sticks, with both Keylor Navas and Sergio Rico contracted at PSG through to 2024.
Since making his AC Milan debut, which came in 2015 when he was just 16 years old, Donnarumma has made 251 appearances for the Serie A side and in doing so firmly cemented himself as Gianluigi Buffon’s successor for the national side.

Talks over a contract extension at the club had been unsuccessful, and It was confirmed by Milan director Paolo Maldini last month that Donnarumma would leave at the end of his deal.
‘I think we must thank all the players who made this an incredible season. Gigio was a leader and often our captain,’ Maldini told Milan TV.
‘People struggle to understand what it means to be a professional, and that you have to be ready to change club.

‘I know it is difficult to accept, but it is increasingly difficult to find careers that start and end in the same place.
‘We must respect those who have given a lot to Milan, he has never lacked respect for us. We are going our separate ways, but I can only wish him the best.’
This led to speculation linking him to many of Europe’s elite clubs, including Juventus much to the fury of Milan supporters.
The club have already secured Donnarumma’s replacement, bringing in Mike Maignan from Lille for £13m on a five-year-deal.
