And the deal brings to an end to Donnarumma’s six years as Milan’s No1 stopper.

The 22-year-old, named Best Player at the Euros, was just 16 when he made his San Siro debut in 2015.

Donnarumma went on to play 251 times for Milan, winning the 2016 Italian Super Cup.

But he will now line up alongside superstars including Neymar and Kylian Mbappe after opting to play for Mauricio Pochettino’s side.

Donnarumma said: “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.”

PSG chief Nasser Al-Khelaifi added: “We are delighted to welcome Gianluigi Donnarumma to Paris Saint-Germain.


“We congratulate him on his Uefa Euro 2020 success and winning Player of the Tournament.

“I know Gianluigi will receive a warm Parisian welcome from every at the club, including his teammates, our staff and all the supporters.”

Donnarumma is PSG’s FIFTH signing of the summer after midfielder Danilo Pereira made his Porto loan move permanent for £14million.

Inter Milan right-back Achraf Hakimi was landed for a whopping £55m after a transfer battle with Chelsea.

And there were free moves for both Real Madrid centre-back Sergio Ramos and Liverpool midfielder Georginio Wijnaldum.
