Paris Saint-Germain goalkeeper Gianluigi Donnarumma intends to stay at the club after settling in his first season, with the intention of winning the Champions League.

PSG wrapped up the Ligue 1 title on Saturday night with a 1-1 draw against Lens – the club’s eighth French domestic triumph in the last 10 seasons – but fell short in Europe again when they were dumped out of the Champions League by Real Madrid in the last 16.

Donnarumma, who arrived as a free agent last summer after leaving AC Milan, has shared duties this season with Keylor Navas and sat out the Lens match after the veteran Costa Rican got the nod for the second league game in a row.

“I will stay at PSG and try to win the Champions League,” Donnarumma told Sky Sport Italia, showing little desire to head elsewhere despite not being the regular first choice.

“It was a great satisfaction [to win Ligue 1],” he added. “I’ve settled in my first season here and I am pleased with how it’s gone. We are sorry for the disappointment in the Champions League, but we’ll try to make up for it.”

Donnarumma was a Euro 2020 winner with Italy last summer. This season’s Ligue 1 success is only the second club trophy of his career following the 2016 Supercoppa Italiana with Milan.

The 23-year-old remains under contract with PSG until the end of the 2025/26 season.
