PSG have announced the signing of former Juventus and Italy goalkeeper Gianluigi Buffon on a free transfer.

“I know what dreams PSG and its fans have in their hearts,” he said.

“I am going to bring all my energy, all my experience and all of my thirst to win to help my new club achieve all the great objectives it has set out for the future.

“For the first time in my career, I am leaving my country and only a project this ambitious could have encouraged me to make such a decision.”

Buffon played a whopping 656 times, winning nine Serie A titles, and despite being offered an off-field role at Juve, he signed a one-year deal with the French champions with the option for a further 12 months.
