Donnarumma said in quotes on PSG’s official website:
‘I am very happy to be part of this great club that is Paris St Germain.’
‘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 give joy to the supporters.’
PSG president Nasser Al-Khelaifi said:
