Juventus and Italy legend Gianluigi Buffon tells heir apparent Gianluigi Buffon to 'do whatever makes him happy' as he continues to deliberate over his AC Milan future.

Gianluigi Buffon has urged Italy international teammate Gianluigi Donnarumma to "do what makes him happy", as speculation over his AC Milan future continues to rumble on.

The 18-year-old declared earlier this summer that he does not intend to sign a contract extension with the Rossoneri, meaning that he could depart as a free agent in less than 12 months' time.

Juventus have shown a public interest in the young stopper, who has been backed to emulate Buffon between the sticks for both club and country over the next two decades.

Buffon has offered some guidance to his heir apparent, telling him to simply do what feels right when it comes to taking the next step in his career.

"I don't give advice, because I always made my own mistakes and would only be adding further chaos to the situation," he told Sky Sport Italia.

"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."

Manchester United and Real Madrid are also reportedly keen on Donnarumma, who is due to meet with Milan chiefs in the coming weeks to discuss his future.
