Parma signing Buffon confirms texts with Donnarumma about PSG move

Parma signing Gigi Buffon admits he regrets his error against Manchester United in the 2019 round of 16 Champions League defeat with PSG.

Buffon also offered advice to Gigio Donnarumma after his move to PSG from AC Milan.

“I played a great season in Paris, I made that mistake in the Champions League. It was costly, but we didn't lose that game 1-0, we lost it 3-1. It was a bad night for everybody," he told La Gazzetta dello Sport.

“The truth is I've been walking on thin ice since I was 17. It happened at Juventus, PSG and it will happen in Parma because I am going ahead and somebody doesn't like it," he continued.

“The truth is nothing is ever forgiven to the best ones, they are just waiting for you to fail.

“It will happen to (Gianluigi) Donnarumma as well, but he must remain calm, because he is so strong. It will go well for him in Paris, even more than well. We texted each other during the Euros, discussing PSG and more."
