According to Gazzetta dello Sport, Juventus are interested in signing Paris Saint-Germain (PSG) goalkeeper Gianluigi Donnarumma in the summer transfer window.
However, Juventus will only make a move for the Italian goalkeeper if their first-choice keeper Wojciech Szczesny leaves the club in the summer. The Pole has made 24 appearances for the Serie A giants this season, keeping 12 clean sheets.
His current contract expires at the end of the 2023-24 season and he has the option for one more year. According to the report, Premier League clubs would be interested in Szczesny’s services.
Donnarumma, who played for AC Milan in the past, is currently PSG’s undisputed number one. He has made 35 appearances for the Ligue 1 side this term, keeping 12 clean sheets.
The transfer of Keylor Navas to Nottingham Forest on loan shows that manager Christophe Galtier has full faith in the Italian.
Since his arrival in 2021, Donnarumma has made 59 appearances for the parisians, keeping 21 clean sheets. He has a contract until the end of the 2025-26 season. Therefore, Juve could have to spend a fortune if they want to secure Donnarumma’s services.
Christophe Galtier praised Donnarumma ahead of their UEFA Champions League round of 16 second leg against Bayern Munich (via RMC Sport):
“He’s a young, reliable, high-level goalkeeper. The first goal against Nantes shouldn’t happen to you anymore. It’s experience. But he knew how to be decisive at important moments. I think he’s a top goalkeeper”.
