Gianluigi Buffon: “My future is already set
This Tuesday, he confided on BeIN Sports, later relayed by La Gazzetta dello Sport, his desire to leave the Old Lady at the end of the season, when his contract will end. “My future is clear, already mapped out. This year, my experience at Juventus will come to an end. Either I stop playing. Or, if I find a situation that stimulates me for a different experience, I will take it into consideration. At Juve, I have given and received everything, we have reached the end of a cycle and therefore it is right that I leave. “
One of the greatest Goalkeepers in the history of soccer
