Serie-A giants Juventus are interested in signing Italian international Gianluigi Donnarumma from Ligue 1 outfit Paris Saint-Germain.
Donnarumma joined AC Milan’s academy at a very age. He then graduated from the AC Milan academy and was promoted to the main team.
The Italian soon broke into the starting lineup and started to showcase his potential under the goal. He helped Milan to achieve qualification in the UEFA Champions League after eight long years.
The goalkeeper then joined Ligue 1 giants Paris Saint-Germain on a free transfer in the summer of 2021. In his debut season with the club, he won the Ligue 1 title. Donnrumma has also represented Italy in international football. The custodian was a part of the Italian side that won the Euro Cup, last year.
Juventus Remain Interested in Donnarumma
Now according to a report from Calciomercato, the Bianconeri are eying a move for the 23-year-old shot-stopper in near future.
After dominating the Serie-A for over a decade, Juventus are now currently going through a transition period. And even this time around, the Bianconeri got a tough start to their season.
Juventus have managed to win only six out of their first twelve matches in the Serie-A. With twenty-two points, they are currently in the seventh position in the table. Their record in the continental tournament has been even poor.
For the first time in its history, Juventus lost five out of its six matches in the UEFA Champions League. This also includes a humiliating defeat against the Israeli side Maccabi Haifa. As a result, they have been knocked out of the group stage and will participate in the Europa league now.
Juventus management understands this situation very well. They are now going to strengthen multiple positions in the next few windows. However, the goalkeeping position should be the least concern for them.
Juventus currently have Polish goalkeeper Wojciech Szczesny as their main goalkeeper. Despite Juventus’ poor form, he has performed really well. But Szczesny is already 32 and when his contract will end at Juventus he will be thirty-four.
The Polish goalkeeper also has a history of injuries, Hence Juventus are currently looking at Donnarumma. The PSG goalkeeper is the no.1 goalkeeper for Italy and one of the best in the world. And all that when he has not even reached his prime.
Now Juventus tried to sign him when his contract with AC Milan was expiring but the goalkeeper decided to join PSG. He is currently one of the most important players for PSG. He has a long contract with them. So Juventus will have to spend a lot of money if they want to secure him.
