Paris Saint-Germain are close to signing Gianluigi Donnarumma on a free transfer this summer.
According to reports from Sky Sports, PSG are closing in on the signing of the Italy goalkeeper.
The 22-year-old will ask for the #99 shirt at PSG, while first-choice keeper Keylor Navas will stay at the French club.
Popular football journalist, Fabrizio Romano, tweeted yesterday:

The 22-year-old top-class goalkeeper is leaving AC Milan upon the expiry of his deal at the end of the month. He will now join PSG as a free agent.
AC Milan had been locked in talks with Donnarumma’s agent Mino Raiola for various months but the Serie A giants couldn’t reach an amicable agreement with the player.
Excerpt from Sky Sports:
“PSG are understood to have offered Donnarumma a five-year deal with wages of around 12 million Euros (£10.3m) per year plus add-ons and will win the race to sign the goalkeeper should Barcelona not match or better their bid.
“Donnarumma is currently on international duty with Italy and could undergo a medical at the national team’s Coverciano training base before their opening Euro 2020 match against Turkey in Rome on Friday.”
