Gianluigi Donnarumma reveals he is “disturbed” by PSG’s rivalry with Keylor Navas


Paris Saint-Germain’s goalkeeper Gianluigi Donnarumma has opened up to compete with Keylor Navas to become the French side’s starting goalkeeper.

Donnarumma sealed a move to the French capital on a free transfer from Milan shortly before he played a major role in Italy’s triumph at the 2020 European Championships, which consolidated his place as one of the world’s top scorers.

But things have not gone well for him since he arrived at the Parc des Princes. Donnarumma has only started five Ligue 1 matches and two in the Champions League for Les Parisiens, where Navas made eight and two starts in the respective competitions.

Donnarumma has insisted that although this rotation of Mauricio Pochettino does not hurt his performance, he has revealed that it is a new feeling to have to compete for his place in the starting eleven.

“It has no effect on my performance, but it bothers me,” Donnarumma told TNT Sports about his fight with Navas.

“It’s not easy, because I was used to always starting and sometimes it hurts to sit on the bench.

“But I’m sure the situation will be resolved.”

Donnarumma’s uncertain place in the team has already led to talk of a transfer from PSG, with both Barcelona and Juventus linked to movements.

But when he talked earlier this season about rumors of a quick departure from Paris, Donnarumma told Sky Sport Italia: “I just want to laugh. I love PSG, and I laugh when I read all this nonsense about me. It is incredible to play with all these masters.

“There are no problems, there is no kind of problem, I’m glad to be here, I have it [club] who always support me. “
