Gianluigi Donnarumma stands by his decision to leave Milan for Paris Saint-Germain despite having to share goalkeeping duties with Keylor Navas since arriving in France.
Italy's Euro 2020 hero Donnarumma has only made 10 league starts since joining PSG on a free transfer last year, while Costa Rican competitor Keylor Navas has appeared between the sticks in 13 of the side's Ligue 1 outings.
Speaking to La Gazzetta dello Sport, Donnarumma, who made 215 Serie A appearances at Milan after coming through the Rossoneri's youth ranks, thanked his former club for their role in his development, but stressed that he was happy with life at PSG.
"I can only thank the club for what they did for me", the 22-year-old said. "I improved as a man and as a footballer in Milan.
"I think PSG was in my destiny.
"They had been following me for many years and have always made sure I knew about their interest. Everyone at the club makes me feel important, from President Al-Khelaifi to director Leonardo. I am happy and proud to be here.
When asked about his competition with Navas, Donnarumma responded: "I knew that this was the situation when I signed with PSG.
"I don't know what he [Navas] thinks, but I am okay with it because everyone here always makes me feel important.
"It's not true that we are not on good terms, there is an excellent rapport between us, he is a good guy and there are no problems."
