He is preparing for the UEFA Champions League final, finishing another brilliant season. Despite having turned 39 he remains a top goalkeeper, but even so, Gianluigi Buffon will still retire, sooner or later. Who could be his successor at Juventus? According to Iker Casillas, the answer is rather obvious.
They should take Donnarumma. Leave him on loan for a year or two until Gigi retires and then bring him to Turin
the Spanish goalkeeper told La Gazzetta dello Sport.
If I were to bet on a young goalkeeper it would be him. There’s no-one else in Europe, there isn’t another 18-year-old with so many qualities
Casillas said, talking about the 18-year-old Milan goalkeeper, before adding
obviously he still has to mature for a year or two, but his qualities are obvious.
The former Real Madrid skipper talked about his own future as well, admitting that there is a good chance he’ll be playing in Italy next season.
I have a clause which allows me to stay at Porto for another year, but I’m reflecting. We’ll decide together. As far as I’m concerned, Serie A is a good option. There are big teams, the football is important and I like the country. I’d like to come to Italy. Then it would be beautiful to play against Gigi again, wonderful
the Blancos legend said.
