Paris (AFP) – Gianluigi Donnarumma has warned Paris Saint-Germainthat they have to select between him and rival goalkeeper Keylor Navas subsequent season.
Italian Donnarumma signed from AC Milan final summer season to hitch veteran Navas, 35, who has been within the French capital since leaving Real Madrid in 2019.
Despite stressing his “very good relationship” with Navas, Donnarumma insisted it was out of the query to share the job subsequent season.
“No, I think it will surely not happen like that, because I think the club will make choices,” Donnarumma instructed AFP in an interview.
“We’re two good guys, we understand the situation, but it was hard, and for him too, but let’s say that we managed it well.”
Donnarumma stated “yes of course” he needed to remain subsequent season along with his contract working till 2026.
The 23-year-old lifted his first league title with PSG, whereas for Costa Rican Navas it was a second in France to hitch the La Liga trophy and three Champions League trophies he gained in Spain.
“It’s beautiful, it’s my first league title, I’m very happy, and it’s my first trophy with the Paris Saint-Germain shirt,” stated Donnarumma.
“I’m very proud to belong to a great, very ambitious club, always aiming higher.”
Donnarumma arrived in France after being named the most effective participant within the European championships which Italy gained.
“The debut was not easy, because it was my first outside Italy, in a new club, a new city (but) pressure, no,” defined Donnarumma, who had spent six years in Milan.
“I feel a big family behind me, a big club, the welcome was great, and after it was easier for me.”
Donnarumma sid it hadn’t been an “easy” season, giving it seven out of 10.
“I know I can do more,” he stated. “I haven’t played so many matches, only half, that wasn’t easy. In the conditions I experienced, I couldn’t give the maximum, but I’m convinced that I can give a lot more to this team and this club.”
In addition to PSG’s Champions League exit to Real Madrid within the final 16, Donnarumma’s Italy didn’t qualify for a second straight World Cup.
“It was hard, very hard,” he sighed.
“The following days were very difficult, but there is no going back. What we did at the Euro will remain in history, we have achieved something incredible.
“Unfortunately we did not succeed in going to the World Cup, but we have to look ahead and start again.”
