News coming from France is not good for PSG as their new goalkeeper Gianluigi Donnarumma is unhappy with his situation. This has alerted top clubs including the Italian giants Juventus, who were previously interested in bringing the 22-year-old.
Donnarumma is said to be upset with the lack of minutes he is getting at PSG. Juventus could capitalize on this situation as they are facing issues in the goalkeeping department themselves.
Donnarumma won the player of the tournament award in Euro 2020 when his national side Italy became the champions. He made his move to PSG in the summer for free after not renewing his contract at his childhood club AC Milan. Juventus, who were admirers of Donnarumma, was not able to sign the Italian, but could still make a move for him next summer.
UNHAPPY DONNARUMMA COULD MOVE TO JUVENTUS
Juventus had a disastrous start to the new season with the club currently 12th in the table after 5 matches. A lot of criticism has came against their first-choice goalkeeper Wojciech Szczesny. The former Arsenal man has been the main shot-stopper for the Bianconneri in the last few seasons.
But increasingly his mistakes and in-game decisions have been called into question. It was also recently found that Juventus did not sign Donnarumma because they couldn’t sell Szczesny this summer. Donnarumma’s agent Mino Raiola stated that he was in contact with Juventus, but the club did not want to have two top-class goalkeepers in the team.
With his performance raising doubts, questions are raised against the Juventus management for not signing the young Italian. Though Donnarumma is just 22, he already has 215 Seria A appearances to his name. An excellent shot-stopper, Gigio is also the main keeper for his national side.
However, Juventus could still sign Donnarumma. After his move to PSG, the Italian has not been able to get regular playing time. Manager Mauricio Pochettino still prefers veteran Keylor Navas as his number one choice. This meant that Donnarumma has only made 2 appearances for Les Parisiens.
Donnarumma is unhappy with the situation but expects to earn more game time as the season progress. But if things don’t go as planned, he could fancy a move back to Italy with Juventus, though it would not come cheap.
