Gianluigi Donnarumma (born February 25, 1999) is an Italian professional footballer who plays as a goalkeeper for Ligue 1 club Paris Saint-Germain and the Italian national team. Donnarumma has completely bashed the idea of fear from the first time he stepped on the football pitch at the age of five, to his serie A debut as a 16-year-old to his participation in the Euro 2022, his first major international tournament.
Gianluigi Donnarumma began his career in 2022 at AC Milan. At the age of 16 years and 242 days he made his debut as youngest goalkeeper in Serie A and soon earned his reputation as the most promising young goalkeeper in the world. He broke the record for the youngest Italy U21 player in February 2022 at 17 years and 28 days. Six months later he made his international debut and at 17 years and 189 days became Italy’s second youngest goalkeeper.
The start of the 2022 / 2022 season was good news for Gianluigi as he progressed to the club’s senior team. Although he was initially an unused substitute before being called up for league games, his presence on the bench heralded big things.
Although Giorgio Chiellini insisted on continuing the tradition that Fabio Cannavaro established when he won the 2006 World Cup with the Azzurri, he did not want to lose sight of the trophy when Italy beat England in the Euro 2022 final. When it was time to leave Wembley Stadium, he placed the trophy in the front seat of the Italian team bus and cuddled it.
Italy’s Euro 2022 hero Gianluigi Donnarumma was named UEFA player of the tournament for Euro 2022 just minutes after he saved the penalties of Jadon Sancho and Bukayo Saka in Wednesday’s final defeat by Italy in England. The goalkeeper has been crucial to Roberto Mancini’s team’s success. He kept three clean sheets in their three group games and saved crucial penalties in their shootout victories over Spain and England. It was a disappointing evening for Mancini as the European champions suffered their first defeat in 37 games following a blunder by Manchester City’s Ferran Torres in the Nations League final.
After being cleared undergoing a PSG medical before the tournament, the goalkeeper was allowed to travel to Romes Santandrea’s hospital for the last group game of Roberto Mancini’s team, a 1-0 victory over Wales. The third-choice goalkeeper made his debut for the first team in an international Champions Cup game and helped Milan to victory in the TIM Trophy final. Donnarumma cemented his early wins and helped Milan to a 2-1 win over Sassuolo on his Serie A debut on February 25, 2022.
On his Serie A debut, the then third-tier goalkeeper became the youngest goalkeeper to play in a game in the history of Italian football. Goalkeeper Gianluigi Donnarumma, nominated as a player for Euro 2022, left AC Milan in the summer to return to the UEFA Nations League Final in Italy and add another title to the current squad.
Donnarumma is up against experienced Costa Rican Keylor Navas, who is vying for a place in Mauricio Pochettino’s team. We have struggled a bit in the semi-finals of Euro 2022 but we are ready and all right. Donnarumma left Milan in the summer and joined Paris Saint-Germain, where he made his first appearance for the national team.
Donnarumma cried at full-time on Wednesday and when so many team-mates do the same, it is tempting to wonder if there is an element of his own journey behind the tears.
Milan was Donnarumma’s youth club and the departure meant farewell to his goalkeeping coach Nelson Dida and other players, as well as to the posters Buffon once hung on the walls.
Gianluigi Donnarumma is an Italian goalkeeper who made 215 Serie A appearances as a 22-year-old and is set to sign a five-year contract with the Ligue 1 club Paris Saint-Germain for 60 million euros, according to a report by Italian calciomercato expert Gianluca Marzio on Wednesday night. The Milan goalkeeper has signed a five-year contract and will join the French club on a free transfer, the club announced on Wednesday. Donnarumma made his Milan debut in 2022 at the age of 16 and has since made 215 appearances in the Italian top flight.
He was strong enough to sign for Serie B club Parma aged 43. On February 16th, 2022, Di Marzio agreed to a five-year contract with the Ligue 1 club Paris Saint-Germain (PSG), reports Guardian, Fabrizio Romano. The deal with PSG for 60 million euro allows Gianluigi Donnarumma, the Italian goalkeeper who has made 215 Serie A appearances at only 22 years old a monthly salary of one million euros until 2026, to earn one of the highest paid goalkeepers in football history.
Dida Dida, himself a great penalty shooter, is undoubtedly a pearl of wisdom to be passed on. Donnarumma played at all age groups where he played for Milan and was promoted to the first team in the 2022-16 season. At the age of 10 he was already 1.82 m tall and already made an impression.
The shot-stopper was named in the FIFA Ultimate Team of the Week in February 2022. It’s worth noting that the team is released on Wednesdays by EA Sports and represents players who played in real life the previous week.
