Gianluigi Donnarumma-Best goal keeper of 2021

If he's the best goalkeeper at the moment, fight Courtois and Ter Stegen and send them off. Despite retiring from PSG this summer, he remains one of the best Serie A goalscorers in 2021.

Size, power, agility, strength in the air... the young Italian has it all and loves his job in Paris Saint-Germain, where he came over the summer. The former Milan star has impressed this season with her dazzling airplay and volley. Not only is he huge physically, but his mental strength is also exceptional for a player of his age. If Donnarumma continues to work hard at the gym, it is also because he is still young and knows he can get even better.

But Donnarumma still has a long way to go, widely regarded as one of the best Italian goalkeepers of all time. Donnarumma has signed a five-year contract with PSG and is expected to take on Keeler Navas for jersey No. 1 next season. At €8m/year with the add-on, we say Donnarumma could be the deal of the year.

Actually, it seems that Donnarumma has been in a hurry from the start. Just six months after joining Milan's main squad at the age of 16, he first played in Italy and then won gold at Euros in the summer of 2021. He was at a high level from the start - he was only 17 when he replaced the legendary Gigi Buffon in the national team. Today he looks like a 35 as he builds his defensive line and sometimes reminds me of German Manuel Neuer.

It could be argued that he is one of the best in the world both as a full-back and a midfielder, where he is rarely used for Pep Guardiola.

He also won two penalties and saved three in a row last night, even though he was not aware of it, giving his team a chance to win the European Championship. He faced two penalty kicks and saved one in Serie A this season. In front of him is another African Sevilla goalkeeper Yasin Bunu, who is in 8th place.

Last week, he was awarded the Yashin Goalkeeper's Trophy at the 2021 Ballon d'Or ceremony and spoke about his rumored position at the Parc des Princes and his relationship with Keylor Navas. Speaking on the official website of Chelsea, he admitted that 2021 will be the best year of his career. The Egyptian king has talked about being the best player in the world since early 2021, but the end of the calendar year could mark his hottest run in the red jersey.

While the Italian reported his preseason late due to his participation in Euro 2020, many thought he would eventually take the position of starting goalkeeper Mauricio Pochettinos after a few matches. Gianluigi Donnarumma was voted goalkeeper of the year and said he was destined for PSG.

No goalkeeper was voted player of the tournament at the European Championships before Gianluigi Donnarumma was awarded the outstanding performance for Italy at Euro 2020. The young goalkeeper was named the World's Best Goalkeeper 2021 by the International Federation of Football History and Statistics. At the IFFHS Awards. The winner of the Euro with Italy, the PSG player was named the best goalkeeper of the previous year ahead of Neuer, Ederson, or Edouard Mendy. However, the decision to award the PSG goalkeeper did not go down well with Chelsea fans, who believe Edouard Mendy should have won.

Despite excellent performances in the first season of English football, Chelsea's No. 1 Mendy barely lost to Donnarumma in the final vote. Manchester City Edson finished in fourth place, league champion Jan Oblak in third, and European champion Mendy in second. These seats are reserved for legendary Bayern striker Manuel Neuer (third), Atletico Madrid goalkeeper Jan Oblak (second), and Paris Saint-Germain star Gianluigi Donnarumma, the latter competing for the lead.

Donnarumma became only the second goalkeeper to win the trophy, following in the footsteps of Liverpool's Alison Baker, who won the first Yashin Trophy in 2019. Donnarumma became only the second player after Liverpool Alisson to win the Yashin Trophy, and Brazil won the first prize. Before the ceremony in 2019 was canceled the following year.

The Italian is an important part of Roberto Mancini's team in the 2020 European Cup. As everyone knows Mancini won the Wembley Trophy against England. Donnarumas' outstanding performance in the Italian team won him the Championship Player of the Year award and the 2020 European Cup Championship lineup.

Gianluigi Donnarumma won the Yashin Trophy, awarded to the best goalkeeper in the world this year at the Ballon d'Or in Paris. Senegal and Chelsea goalkeeper Edouard Mendy reacts after Italy and PSG's Glover Gianluigi Donnarumma won the 2021 Yashin Trophy at the Ballon d'Or on Monday night. A scandal erupted in the football world, and some even called it unfair that Mendy had not been seen this year winning the Yashin Trophy, which was awarded goalkeeper of the year. What a year it has been for Ed Mendy, crowned with today's news that Golden Ball voters have placed him second in the 2021 Yashin Trophy, specifically his award for goalkeepers.

Teammate Cannes Jorginho has received more recognition in 2021 than anyone else on this list, playing a key role in Chelsea's success in Europe and Italy's Euro victory. At the Balon d'Or ceremony, the midfielder took third place in the ranking of the best players in the world and confidently made it to the Team of the Year this year. Kevin De Bruyne is the best midfielder in the world, which earned him a spot in our FIFA 22 TOTY.

Former Darlington Pickford manager Craig Liddell believes the Everton player could be the best goalkeeper in the world. Statistically speaking, Pickford holds the record for the longest consecutive England goalkeeper's run, surpassing the 720 minutes set by Gordon Banks in 1966. World-class goalkeepers like Alison Baker, Gian Luigi Buffon, and Samir Handanovic also performed. Well done in Series A.

It is no coincidence that Italy has been producing world-class goalkeepers for generations. One of the notable aspects of Italian football is the many world-class defenders and goalkeepers. Having a top goalkeeper in goals could prove to be crucial for the world's top clubs at the end of the season.

Several outstanding goalkeepers have been selected from the football world: four from the Premier League, two from La Liga, two from Ligue 1, and one from Series A. In all, only two goalkeepers were selected for the award. It will be officially unveiled in Paris next month.

PSG is fortunate to have two excellent goalkeepers in Donnarumma and Navas, but the decision to switch the latter in favor of the former is a confusing one. Donnarumma was replaced frequently, but Navas is still considered the best option for PSG when it mattered.
