Presently names like David de Gea, Thibuat Courtois, Eduardo Mendy, Manuel Neuer, Ederson, Alisson Becker and Andre Onana are ruling the goalkeeping or goalkeepers' world of football.
But Gianluigi Donnarumma who is a free agent and linked with a move to PSG from AC Milan has joined this exclusive club of top shot stoppers.
The 22-year old safe hands of Italy in the ongoing Euro 2020 is getting top review game after game. He has successfully helped his country to the final of Euro 2020 following his heroics in the tournament.
Surely he will be gunning for glory in the tournament just as he hopes to ride on this crest to eye bigger and better performance at the World Cup in Qatar 2022.
A memorable World Cup will arguably place him on the same pedestal with Dino Zoff and Gianluigi Buffon particularly if Italy goes ahead to win the mundial.
He is just 22. This hands him the age advantage and he just might be here for another 20 years. Remember the older a goalkeeper the better he becomes. Zoff did quit at 40+ and Buffon is still hanging on at 36.
We may just be entering the Golden era of Gianluigi Donnarumma....Welcome on board!!!
