The news is as Donnarumma's mythical predecessor for its Azzurri, Gianluigi Buffon, prepares to combine Parma, 26 years later he made his debut for the club.

Gianluigi Donnarumma joins PSG as Gianluigi Buffon goes Straight Back to Parma

Donnarumma has signed up a five-year deal with PSG, bringing to an end months of speculation concerning the 22-year-old's future. His choice to not sign a contract extension with Milan made it apparent that he had been planning to depart the club and he had been at one point connected with a move to Juventus. But he finally decided to proceed to France and combine Mauricio Pochettino's star-studded squad.

Donnarumma is a massive reduction for Milan. Not one of their greatest players but also among the most loyal servants, but he also made his debut for the club at 2015, when he was just 16 decades and 242 days old, which makes him the second-youngest goalkeeper to begin a game in Italian soccer. He's been always exceptional ever since and it's not surprising he has gone on to be a mainstay of Roberto Mancini's national group, beginning both their matches in Euro 2020 so much -- from Turkey and Switzerland.

Donnarumma will struggle for his place together with the 34-year-old Keylor Navas, that was PSG's main goalkeeper considering joining the club from Real Madrid at September 2019. His most recent move is arguably his most intimate, viewing the veteran movement to the club where he made his title aged only 17. Buffon was Donnarumma before Donnarumma was born.

Buffon joins an extremely distinct Parma into the one he made his debut in November 1995, with the team at Serie B was relegated from Serie A last year. But that's obviously of little concern to Buffon, that performed at the second grade with Juventus and turned down offers from Besiktas and Flamengo so as to come back to the Stadio Ennio Tardini.
