Gianluigi Buffon’s contract renewal at Juventus is expected to be confirmed soon.
The veteran goalkeeper’s extension until 2022 is seen as a formality, as he has an excellent relationship with Andrea Agnelli.
Despite being a backup goalkeeper behind Wojciech Szczesny since rejoining from Paris Saint-Germain, the 43-year-old is determined to stay at the club so that he can beat the longevity record set by Marco Ballotta.
The former Lazio ‘keeper has the crown of being the oldest Serie A and Champions League player. His last Champions League appearance came when he was 43 years and 168 days old.
