Parma Calcio 1913 goalkeeper Gianluigi Buffon spent one season with Paris Saint-Germain, and now the capital club is set to have another Italian goalkeeper in Gianluigi Donnarumma.
Although his stint in the French capital was short, the 43-year-old has spoken highly of his time with Les Parisiens. As a result, Buffon knows what type of environment Donnarumma is walking in when the free transfer becomes official.
“I wish him the best of luck. He goes to a wonderful club and city. He’s a solid keeper. He will have the chance to win a trophy shortly,” Buffon said.
According to various reports, Donnarumma will sign a five-year contract with PSG and receives €10-million per season. The 22-year-old arrives as a free agent with his contract with AC Milan expiring in a few days.
Meanwhile, as for Buffon, the former capital club shot-stopper hasn’t called it a career yet since he’ll return to Parma for the 2021-22 season. The Italian club signed Buffon to a two-year contract and will compete in Serie B to earn promotion into Serie A next season.
