Gianluigi Buffon has joined Paris Saint-Germain, ending a glittering 17-year spell at Juventus.
“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,” he told the club’s official website.
“I want to thank the club and the president for their confidence. To have followed the club’s incredible progression in recent years, I know what dreams Paris Saint-Germain and its fans have in their hearts. 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.
“With my teammates and our supporters, we will share fantastic emotions at the Parc des Princes and in all of the stadiums in which we are going to represent Paris, a marvelous city that deserves to one day see its club at the top of international football.”
