Donnarumma joined Paris Saint-Germain this summer on a free transfer after the expiration of his contract with the Rossoneri.
“I spent eight years with Milan, the team was my home and I had many wonderful memories,” Donnarumma said in an interview with the Italian newspaper Correiro dello Sport.
He continued, “I am still passionate about Milan and have great respect for the people who work there and the fans, but life consists of choices and we had different ambitions. I will always be a fan of Milan, and I will not forget the eight years, but I left to improve and grow and become stronger.”
He continued, “There are more mature decisions, I always made my professional decisions alone, my family always left me to do that and supported me, and Mino Raiola also did the same, he respects the wishes of his clients 100% and does everything to meet their requests.”
“I left Milan and had no contact with other clubs, I swear, but I was sure a good European offer would come,” he stressed.
“When I signed with Paris Saint-Germain, the club president told me that we are finally together, now I’m fine and I feel relaxed and calm.”
He concluded, “Last year, the team did not win the French league, but the real goal is the Champions League. Paris always wanted me, but at that time the priority was for Milan and today also, thanks to Milan I feel more confident, more mature and my level has improved a lot.”
Donnarumma led the Italian national team to the title of Euro 2020, and won the award for the best player in the tournament.
Donnarumma has not played for Paris Saint-Germain since joining after taking a break from the end of his Euro 2020 participation.
Donnarumma participated with Milan last season in 48 games, during which he managed to keep a clean sheet in 15 games, and received 54 goals.
