Gianluigi Buffon, who left Juventus after a 17-year spell, has now completed a move to another European giant.
 
 
The Italian World Cup winner has joined Ligue 1 champions Paris Saint-Germain on a free transfer.
 
Buffon, who made 656 appearances for Juve, has signed a one-year deal with the Paris outfit.
 

“We all feel an immense pride in welcoming Gianluigi Buffon into the great Paris Saint-Germain family," PSG president Nasser Al-Khelaifi told the club's official website.
 
“The immensity of his career, as well as his ambitious personality, unifying and elegant, make him one of the most admired and respected players in world football.
 
“At 40 years old, his passion for football is intact and Gianluigi has found the ideal environment in our project to set himself extremely high objectives transmitting his experience, not only to the other goalkeepers at the club, but to all of our players.
 
“Our supporters will know how to welcome Buffon with the enthusiasm and love that he deserves."
 
The former Juventus shot-stopper becomes PSG's first signing for the 2018-2019 season.
