PSG want Donnarumma to replace Buffon

Paris Saint-Germain are interested in signing Gianluigi Donnarumma from AC Milan, according to reports in France.

Italian legend Gianluigi Buffon has confirmed that he will be leaving the Parc Des Princes when his contract expires at the end of this month, and Turin-based outlet Tuttosport claim he could move to Porto and replace his Spanish counterpart – Iker Cassillas.

Meanwhile, Le10Sport report that the Ligue 1 champions are keen on Donnarumma as Buffon’s replacement and a long-term solution for the goalkeeper position that they have been searching for for a long time. The 20-year-old shot-stopper already came close to leaving Milan once. Back in 2017, he engaged in a contract stand-off with the club and caused a lot of anger among the supporters, but he eventually won the contest of wills and received a new contract, one that was set to keep him at San Siro until the summer of 2022.

However, with Milan again unable to nail a Champions League spot for next season, PSG might play that card, among others, to lure him to the French capital.
