Donnarumma is excited' about Messi's arrival at PSG

Lionel Messi's seemingly imminent arrival at Paris Saint-Germain has captured the imagination of a global audience, with Gianluigi Donnarumma among those feeling "excited" about an Argentine icon joining the ranks at Parc des Princes.

An Italy international goalkeeper has already completed a move of his own this summer, with the Euro 2020 winner joining Georginio Wijnaldum and Sergio Ramos in making a switch to France as a free agent.

Achraf Hakimi has also been snapped up from Inter, but the biggest deal may still be in the pipeline as six-time Ballon d'Or winner Messi prepares to sign a two-year contract with PSG following the revelation that no new deal will be agreed at Barcelona.

On the potential arrival of an all-time great in the French capital, Donnarumma has told Sky Sport Italia: "We’ll find out soon if it’s official or not, but that would seem to be the case, and I am very happy that Leo is coming here.

"He’s the best in the world, so I can’t help but be excited and happy. It’s an honour to play with him."

If Messi is to join PSG, then he will be taking in a change of scenery for the first time in his senior club career.

The same is true for Donnarumma, with the 22-year-old severing ties with AC Milan after eight years at San Siro that delivered a debut at 16 and 251 appearances in total.

He opted against committing to fresh terms with the Rossoneri, allowing him to take on a new challenge, and claims to already be feeling settled in a star-studded PSG squad.

One of the finest shot-stoppers in world football added on his early experiences with Mauricio Pochettino's side: "I’m getting along very well in Paris.

"I got to know the team, it’s a great group that gave me a wonderful welcome. It’s all going really well."

PSG, who have suffered a Trophee des Champions defeat to Lille and come from behind to edge out Troyes in their Ligue 1 season opener, will be back in action on Saturday when playing host to Strasbourg.
