for a two-year contract.

he said, according to

La Gazzetta dello Sport


“But now I’m sure that I will continue, because I feel strong and I don’t party alone.

“The esteem of my teammates made me understand that I’m someone who does it right and that I have to continue.

“I have many proposals on the table. There are teams in the Champions League that have offered me a leading role, others that aspire to win it but want me as a back-up, and I only played that role for Juve.

“Then there would be the return to my origins, which leverages feelings and gives me the motivation I need to do well.

“I’m putting everything on the table, in three to four days I decide, I have to figure out which is the best thing to be a protagonist.”

Buffon also expressed his opinion regarding the Champions League not being the same without the Bianconeri, Barcelona and Real Madrid, who may be punished for their commitment to the European Super League.

I believe that without them the competition should change its name,”

he said.

“It’s impossible to imagine it without them, you cannot take away the three teams that have made history and give others great motivations.

“When I was at Parma and PSG, I lived these challenges like magical nights.”
