Gianluigi Buffon Admits He's Spoken To Gianluigi Donnarumma About His Future

It's a miracle that Italian goalkeepers are so good considering how they save every shot:

And yet for as long as we can recall they've just produced keeper after keeper, after keeper. Starting with World Cup winning Dino Zoff they've had the likes of Angelo Peruzzi, Gianluca Pagliuca, Francesco Toldo, Walter Zenga and of course Gianluigi Buffon.

Buffon has been one of the top five goalkeepers since the start of the millennium and he's still going strong at 39 at Juventus, winning league titles and coming so close to getting his hands on the Champions League trophy.

When he does eventually hang up the boots the country have Gianluigi Donnarumma waiting in the wings ready to take his place but the AC Milan goalie doesn't know where he'll be playing next season.

The teenager, yeah he's still only 18 despite playing over 70 games for his club team already in his career, has told Milan he won't be signing a new contract at the San Siro.

That's led to lots of rumours about whether he'll leave this summer for a fee or next on a free.

Talking to Sky Sports Italia Buffon revealed he'd spoken to the heir to his throne and gave him some advice as to what to do next:

"I don't give advice, because I always made my own mistakes and would only be adding further chaos to the situation. I did have a bit of a 15-minute chat with Gigio, though. I can't tell you what we said.

"I have no idea if he'll remain at Milan, but I merely tell him to do what makes him happy.

The passing of the baton is very close with Buffon retiring next year. Image: Twitter

In just three short sentences Buffon said he won't give advice, whilst giving advice, and claimed he couldn't tell us what he said whilst telling us what he said.

Real Madrid and PSG have both been linked with the shot-stopper whilst Juve would of course be fools not to try and replace Buffon with Donnarumma next season if the opportunity becomes available.

What do you think will happen with the teenage keeping sensation?
