PSG announce friendly against Genoa

Gianluigi Donnarumma and Marco Verratti’s Paris Saint-Germain have announced a friendly against Genoa on July 24.

The game will be played at the Stade Omnisport de la Source in Orleans.

PSG are also going to host FC Augsburg in the same arena on July 21.

These are part of their pre-season friendly preparations going into Ligue 1, while Serie A kicks off on the weekend of August 22.

Former Milan goalkeeper Donnarumma signed for PSG yesterday as a free agent, while Verratti has been a stalwart of their midfield since leaving Pescara in 2012.

Both Italy internationals are fresh from winning UEFA EURO 2020.

There is bound to be another familiar face on show, as Genoa have agreed a deal with former Torino shot-stopper Salvatore Sirigu.

The 34-year-old goalkeeper was at Paris Saint-Germain from 2011 to 2016, then going on loan to Sevilla and Osasuna.
