The Numbers

According to Romano, the contract is until 2026 for €12 million per season (add-ons included). AC Milan’s deal offered to their former goalkeeper, in order to originally keep him, was around the €8 million per season mark.

Donnarumma can also be acquired for no transfer fee, as his contract with the Rossoneri is up.

What Donnarumma Means for both PSG and Milan

First off, Donnarumma is a product of the Milan youth system. He was also the team’s vice-captain behind Alessio Romagnoli. After Milan finally made Champions League, many expected Donnarumma to stay. Clearly, this did not happen. Shortly after the Champions League qualification, Milan acquired Lille goalkeeper Mike Maignan. It’s the end of an era for the Italian starlet within Serie A and with Milan, and the constant drama surrounding his contract extensions will now be completely gone for the Milan camp.

The Italian goalkeeper going to PSG is interesting for a variety of reasons. The money is never an issue with PSG, so the deal looks like a steal for the French side. With that being said, PSG does employ Keylor Navas. The Costa Rican is still a top goalkeeper, and a clear number one option. His future with Donnarumma around will be one to monitor.

PSG is now home to two of football’s elite players but also rising stars in Kylian Mbappe and Donnarumma. This makes them a force right now and for the future. It’s no surprise to see PSG making moves right and left due to exiting the Champions League in the semi-finals and losing their Ligue 1 trophy streak to Lille.
