As it turned out, Buffon is not going to finish his career at the age of 42. Juventus is planning to extend the contract with the Italian goalkeeper for another season.
Much has been written in recent years about the possible completion of Buffon’s career. However, each time one of the best goalkeepers in the world continued to play brilliantly despite his age.
This year, too, Gigi Buffon decided to stay for another year. The goalkeeper has expressed a desire to stay at Juventus, and the club has offered him a new contract.
Tuttosport: “Andrea Agnelli and Gianluigi Buffon talked about extending their existing contract last week.”
As reported by Tuttosport, the management of the Turin club has reached an agreement with Buffon. According to the agreement, the contract with the Italian goalkeeper will be extended for another season, until the summer of 2021.
Reportedly, the terms of the contract will not change. So, everything will remain exactly the same as it was in Buffon’s last contract.
No new agreement has been signed yet due to the Coronavirus pandemic. This will happen as soon as everything is over and the teams are assembled.
It is known that when the club returns to the training process, Buffon will meet with Fabio Paratici and the president of the club once again.
After that, the extension of the contract will become official, and the information will be published for the public during this period.
As you may know, Buffon returned to Juventus from PSG last year and has conceded only nine goals in 11 appearances this season.
He became the Italian champion nine times in the composition of “Juventus.”
