Donnarumma’s fresh gear helped his side record a 2-1 victory against Belgium in their Euro 2020 quarter-final.
The goalkeeper had an excellent game against the world’s No1 ranked team, making several quality saves to keep Italy’s lead in tact.
The Predator range is famous for its boots, with Premier League legends Steven Gerrard and David Beckham wearing them during their careers.
But top goalkeepers, such as Donnarumma, are sporting Predators on their hands too.
CALLING ALL ENGLAND FANS…
The Predator Pro gloves are priced at £100 and fitted with 288 spikes to help goalkeepers punch crosses.
They’re currently being worn by the likes of Manchester United star David de Gea and England youngster Aaron Ramsdale.
Although Donnarumma has all the gear, he doesn’t currently have a club after leaving AC Milan at the end of last season.
The youngster has made a tremendous start to his career, making more than 250 club appearances to date – despite his tender age.
Donnarumma is Italy’s first-choice goalkeeper at Euro 2020, ahead of experienced Torino stopper Salvatore Sirigu and Napoli star Alex Meret.
Reports suggest he will sign a five-year deal at Paris Saint-Germain, receiving £200,000-a-week from the Ligue 1 club.
PSG have already signed Georginio Wijnaldum on a free transfer this summer and have been linked with departing Real Madrid legend Sergio Ramos.
