Iconic Italian goalkeeper, Gianluigi Buffon, has revealed that he will leave Juventus at the end of this season.
In an interview with beIN Sports, the 43-year-old spoke about his decision to leave the Old Ladies stating that it seemed like the right time to do so.
“We have reached the end of a cycle and so it is right for me to take my leave.
“This beautiful and very long experience with Juve will come to a definitive end this year,” he said.
Buffon also hinted on a possible consideration for playing for another side if the situation is right.
“Either I stop playing, or if I find a situation that motivates me to play or have a different life experience, I will take it into consideration.
“I feel I gave everything for Juve. I have received everything and more than this cannot be done,” he explained.
The Italian shot-stopper has won ten Serie A titles and four Italian Cups for Juventus in his two stints at the club.
He also spent a season at France with Paris St-Germain, before re-joining Juve in 2019.
On the international stage, Buffon’s major honours include a 2006 World Cup medal with Italy, winning 176 international caps for his country. His 656 appearances in the Italian Serie A also makes him the player with most appearances in the division.
