New Paris Saint-Germain goalkeeper Gianluigi Donnaruma has made a bold statement that one of the reasons he signed for the French Ligue 1 giants is because he aims to win the UEFA Champions League title with them.

Donnaruma left Italian Serie A giant AC Milan after failing to sign a new contract with them and he became a free agent, allowing him to start negotiations with other clubs who showed interest in acquiring his services. The former Italy Under-21 goalkeeper’s wage demands were higher than what Milan wanted to pay and his agent, Mino Raiola was also asking for too much as per-agent fees, meaning that the Italian club had to part ways with the duo.

Just after AC Milan confirmed that the goalkeeper would not be continuing with them for the new season, he had a spectacular campaign with his country Italy at the Euros 2020 tournament, helping the Azzuri to lift the title. The Italy international number one shot-stopper was outstanding for his team at the tournament and pulled off a couple of fine saves on their way to being crowned European Champions.

After his exploits with Italy in the competition, he started negotiating with Paris Saint-Germain ahead of signing for the French giants. The Paris club knew they could afford the player’s wages, so they agreed to the terms of a contract and he signed a long-term deal with them. He is expected to be the club’s first-choice goalkeeper this season, displacing Keylor Navas, who had a splendid campaign with the club last season.

In a recent interview with the club, Donnaruma revealed that he is aiming high at his new club and he is ready to do anything he can to help them out in their bid to win their first-ever UEFA Champions League title.
