Gianluigi Donnarumma has gone from being European Champion to a bench warmer in France as he could hardly imagined he would spend most of his time as a spectator than on the pitch after his move from Milan to Paris Saint-Germain on a free transfer. The Italy international has started just three of the French giants opening 11 games across all competitions in the 2021-22 season.
The 22-year-old is rightly considered to be among the best in the world in his position, but is already being linked with a return to Italy and Juventus in January.
The Italy number one start to life at the Parc des Princes has been as tumultuous as his time in Serie A often was and is unsurprisingly unhappy with his situation in the French capital given his status as one of the world’s leading goalkeepers. Costan Rican Keylor Navas has earned the trust of coach Mauricio Pochettino and has started almost all of Paris Saint-Germain’s games.
However, the former Milan shot-stopper was finally handed a starting berth and kept a clean sheet in the 2-0 Champions League victory over Manchester City. The performance in the Champions League was like a sign of better things to come in the French capital for the Euro 2020 winner, and Donnarumma was also handed the starting berth in the Parc des Princes subsequent game against Rennes, in which they lost 2-0.
After the game against Rennes, things turned ugly and became much worse for the 22-year-old as reports claimed Navas has the full support of PSG owners and that of Lionel Messi.
In sum, if Donnarumma is unable to turn the situation in Paris around, it's unfathomable that he will stick around in France as a back-up option. With Juventus monitoring the events, it wouldn’t be a huge surprise to see Donnarumma starting next season for the Old Lady.
