The 24-year-old Italian played over 215 times for AC Milan, in both youth academy and first team, before signing a lucrative deal with PSG in 2021.
Donnarumma rode the wave of his stellar performance in Italy’s 2020 European Championship triumph to the top. Tonight, the once “best goalkeeper in the world,” returns to the San Siro for the first time.
Donnarumma, no longer a one-club man like Buffon, expects a tense welcome back at AC Milan tonight on match day 4 of 6 in group F. “Mercenario” is the slogan printed on the fake 71-dollar bills.
That’s where the Rossoneri fans plan to launch fake dollar bills at the Italian along with the number 71 shirt. Those jerseys draw their inspiration from a Neapolitan tradition dubbed ‘Smorfia Napoletana’ that links dreams to lottery numbers, where the number 71 corresponds to a ‘man without values'—brutal take.
AC Milan are looking to capitalize on the Donnarumma drama on Tuesday as they look to get three key points to qualify for the last 16. That is, of course, if Dortmund fails to show up against Newcastle.
