Italy star 'completes' PSG medical

International Transfers

An Italy star is reportedly on the brink of joining Paris Saint-Germain, with the player said to have passed a medical ahead of a free transfer. 

Former AC Milan shot-stopper Gianluigi Donnarumma is expected to sign a five-year deal with the Ligue 1 giants, with wages of £10.3 million (R204 million) a year plus add-ons, according to Sky Sports, who have reported that the 22-year-old will sign for the French side if FC Barcelona do not match their bid.

Donnarumma, who is with Italy at the 2020 UEFA European Championship, was reportedly allowed to leave his team's quarantine bubble to travel to a hospital in Rome after the Azzurri's 1-0 win over Wales on Sunday in order to complete a medical.

Current PSG No. 1 Keylor Navas is understood to be unhappy with his club's reported approach for Donnarumma, and took to Instagram Stories on Monday to publish a cryptic message that read: "Offer your absence to those who do not value your presence."

While many assumed the message was aimed at his club, others have stated that it could be meant for the Costa Rica national team, with Navas having not been selected for some of country's latest squads. 

Donnarumma's agent Mino Raiola was reportedly in negotiations with Milan for months regarding a possible extension, but the two parties were unable to reach an agreement.  

The Rossoneri have seemingly already secured their replacement for the Italy No. 1 by bringing in France international Mike Maignan from 2020/21 Ligue 1 champions Lille for a reported fee of £12.9 million (R256 million).
