Gianluigi Buffon could sign for any of these three clubs after leaving Juventus
Gianluigi Buffon has announced that he will leave Juventus at the end of the season. He will no longer be the part of his most beloved club from July.
Buffon’s contract with Juventus will expire at the end of the June. However, the legendary goalkeeper won his last trophy in his last match with Juventus.
But the 43 year old is not yet ready to step back in his professional career. He is going to sign for a new club after leaving the Old Lady.
Benfica, Sevilla and Olympiacos are the three clubs interested in his signing this summer. Buffon said that he will accept the “most stimulating and crazy” proposal.
The Portuguese side is offering the FIFA World Cup winner a deal. They are to convince him to move to Lisbon by writing an open letter to Buffon.
The letter reads: “Dear Gigi, We heard that you are looking for a new challenge and receptive to listening to a ‘crazy and stimulating’ proposal.
“Therefore, we decided to present you with something irresistible: how about moving to Lisbon and helping us to quickly return to our place in Portuguese football, the I Liga?
“Our friendship does not come from today. You have known us since at least 2004, the year when with the Italian team you trained daily at Estádio do Restelo, our home and the most beautiful of the sports venues.

“We are sure that you have not forgotten it – how could you? – as well as the incredible view that our sports complex has over the Tagus River. Because you are a man of football and a citizen of the world, you probably knew us before.”
Buffon spent 17 years in his first spell with the Bianconeri. He later joined PSG but returned in 2019 to serve with Wojciech Szczesny.
