Since Luis Enrique was announced as the new PSG manager at the beginning of July, there has been uncertainty about the level of goalkeeper Gianluigi Donnarumma in Paris. The Italian goalkeeper has yet to gain a foothold in the French capital, and there are clear doubts about his performance within the club. Faced with this situation, the Asturian coach asked the director, Luis Campos, for the sporting incorporation of a goalkeeper with exceptional footwork skills.
Last Sunday, Arnau Tenas, the 22-year-old goalkeeper, was officially presented as the new PSG player. After the failure to renew his contract with Barcelona, the Spain under-21 international found himself without a team, and the insistence of Luis Enrique, with whom he shares agent Iván de la Peña, was decisive for him to decide the French team. Although he initially arrives as Donnarumma’s replacement, it is not excluded that he could compete for the title.
In the teams led by Luis Enrique one of the non-negotiable premises is that the goalkeeper is fundamental in building the game from the moment the ball comes out. Donnarumma has many qualities, but his ability on the ball is not one of them. On the other hand, Arnau Tenas has a great quality to break ranks with his passing, which could allow him to establish himself as a starter alongside the former Spanish coach.
