Veteran goalkeeper Gianluigi Buffon has confirmed that he will leave PSG at the end of this month. Buffon joined PSG from Juventus last summer on a free transfer. The 41-year old goalkeeping great made 25 appearances for the Parisians this season, making 9 clean sheets.
“I leave happy to have enjoyed this experience which has undoubtedly helped me to grow,” said Buffon. Ernest Hemingway wrote that there are only two places in the world where people can live happily: at home and in Paris. Today onwards, this will also apply to me: Paris, in some way, will always remain my home… Allez Paris! Today my adventure outside Italy comes to an end.
Upon Buffon’s departure, PSG chairman Nasser-Al-Khelaifi said,”I will never forget the pride that everyone at Paris St-Germain, both the club and the fans, felt when they saw Gianluigi Buffon wearing our jersey. During his time at PSG he brought his phenomenal experience and his sense of professionalism not only to his team-mates but also to all areas of the club. We will miss his warm and open personality here at the club.”
With Buffon departing the club, it will be interesting to see if the Italian joins another club or brings his extraordinary career to an end.
