Donnarumma’s impressive tournament
A free agent heading into Euro 2020, Gianluigi Donnarumma had a tournament to remember. Still just 22-years-old, he saved two penalties in the final shoot-out against England to ensure that the Azzurri took the trophy back to Rome.
This is magnificent:

His performances both in the tournament proper, and in the two penalty shoot outs against Spain and the three lions ensured that the young shot-stopper also walked away with the player of the tournament trophy, previously won by the likes of Xavi, Andres Iniesta, and Zinedine Zidane.

PSG announce latest signing
PSG’s summer spending has continued with Donnarumma the latest man to be announced in the French capital.
— Paris Saint-Germain (@PSG_inside) July 14, 2021
Maurizio Pochettino’s side are looking to strengthen following a disappointing 2020-21 campaign, in which they finished 2nd to Lille in Ligue 1, and were knocked out by Manchester City in the semi-final of the UEFA Champions League.
So far, they have added wing-back Achraf Hakimi, ex-Real Madrid defender Sergio Ramos, and former Liverpool midfielder Georginio Wijnaldum to their ranks, and their business may not be finished there.
🗞According to reports in Italy, PSG have submitted a €40m offer to AC Milan for Theo Hernandez.

Theo Hernandez, AC Milan’s impressive left-back, is thought to be the next man on the French side’s wishlist, with reports in Italy suggesting their opening offer has been turned down, but that the Parisians will be returning with an improved one in the future.
Can anyone stop their Champions League surge?
