I have received more. The time to come is all to be written. And to live,” read a part of the note. Needless to say, the fans are quite disappointed with his decision as Buffon is unarguably one of the best goalkeepers in Serie A.

Buffon has been with Juventus since 2001 and has 10 titles under his belt. The 41-year-old also won Ligue 1 with Paris Saint-Germain in 2018-2019 before returning to the Turin giants, and the UEFA Cup back in 1999 with Parma, where he began his career as a teenager in 1995.
