  • Buffon leaves Juve, but he may still play on elsewhere

"There's no point now betting on where I could go".

Juventus have confirmed that veteran defender Giorgio Chiellini will replace departing goalkeeper Gianluigi Buffon as the captain of the club.

Agnelli confirmed Wojciech Szczesny will likely be Juve's new number one next season and Buffon thinks the Poland global has benefited from the experience in the Allianz Stadium dressing room. Buffon will have plenty more appealing offers - both on and off the pitch. It was a particular situation and a few days later I confessed the Buffon of that day, with the sentiments and feelings of that night, couldn't help but say those things.

'If I'd seen him two days later, I'd have hugged Michael Oliver and apologised, but also said he could've been a bit calmer in such an important game for us and for me.

The Italian legend, who on Thursday announced he will play his final game for Juve this weekend, launched a verbal attack against Northumberland official Oliver after April's match at the Bernabeu. "I wouldn't feel at ease". "I would like to conclude by thanking the Juventus family and the whole club".

Buffon arrived at Juventus from Parma in 2001 for a then world record fee for a goalkeeper.

"I am not someone who thinks it is right to end my career in who knows what third or fourth level division", he said.

Buffon has never managed to win the Champions League, losing the 2003 final to AC Milan, in 2014 to Barcelona and in 2017 to Real Madrid. An nine-time Serie A victor, Buffon also won the World Cup with Italy in 2006, a remarkable run since joining Juventus from Parma in 2001 for a world-record fee for a goalkeeper.

While Buffon himself has not given any hints over where any destinations could be, according to The Sun, Liverpool have made an approach with Manchester City also thought to be interested.

The shot-stopper also confirmed he would not play again for the Azzurri, ruling out an expected worldwide farewell on June 4 in a friendly against the Netherlands.
