Gianluigi Donnarumma Writes An Emotional Farewell To Ac Milan On Instagram Ahead Of His Move To Psg

Ahead of his projected transfer to Paris Saint-Germain, Gianluigi Donnarumma has sent a farewell letter to AC Milan fans.

The Italy goalkeeper, 22, is set to join France in the coming weeks after becoming a national hero with two penalty saves against England in Sunday’s Euro 2020 final.

After making his competitive debut at the age of 16 years and 242 days in October 2015, Donnarumma has appeared in 251 matches for Milan.

With an Instagram message and a video compilation of some of his best saves, he has bid an emotional farewell to the Rossoneri.

‘Some choices are difficult, but they are part of a man’s growth,’ tweeted Gianluigi Donnarumma, who won Euro 2020 with Italy on Sunday. The 22-year-old saved from Jadon Sancho and Bukayo Saka (pictured) in the final at Wembley.

‘I arrived at Milan when I was little more than a child; for eight years, I proudly wore this shirt; we battled, suffered, won, cried, and celebrated along with my team-mates, coaches, and all those who have made and are part of the club; we fought, suffered, won, cried, and celebrated together with our supporters who have been an vital part of what has been a family for many years.’

‘I also achieved personal ambitions while wearing the Rossoneri shirt, such as making my Serie A debut at the age of 16.’

I had some incredible years that I will never forget.

‘Now is the time to say goodbye, a difficult decision that requires more than a post to express, or perhaps cannot be explained at all because the innermost feelings are difficult to put into words.

‘All I can say is that sometimes it is right to choose to change, to confront difficult difficulties, to grow, to complete oneself,’ said Donnarumma, who had been with AC Milan since he was 14 years old.

‘Every Rossoneri I encountered, from the first to the last, will always be a significant, if not essential, part of the life path that shaped me into the person I am today.’

‘I wish Milan all the best, and I do so from the bottom of my heart, for the emotion that links me to these colors, a feeling that distance and time cannot erase.’ The 22-year-old is expected to join PSG ahead of the new season. Donnarumma maintained 14 clean sheets last season as Milan placed second behind Inter in Serie A, returning them to the Champions League for the first time in their history.

He then saved penalties from Jadon Sancho and Bukayo Saka as Italy won the European Championship 3-2 on penalties at Wembley last weekend.

Donnarumma is anticipated to be officially recognized as a PSG player soon, signing a five-year contract. His Milan contract expired at the beginning of this month after he declined to sign a new one.
