Torino goalkeeper Salvatore Sirigu says Gigio Donnarumma never allowed transfer talk to unsettle him during Euro 2020.

Donnarumma completed his move from AC Milan to PSG after winning the Euros.

Azzurri teammate Sirigu recalled: "The market is part of our life every summer, regardless of the European Championship.

“It's undeniable that certain news can be on everyone's lips even in the dressing room.

“Some were outlined, others developed during the tournament, even if they never existed. There have never been too much attention.

“For Donnarumma himself, we knew that his contract expired on June 30 and we already knew how it would end. However, we are all used to being at the centre of rumours and negotiations. It's part of our job and fortunately it didn't distract us at all."
