Italy great Buffon thrilled as he signs up for one-year deal at PSG
Gianluigi Buffon has signed an initial one-year contract with Paris Saint-Germain after leaving Juventus, the Ligue 1 champions have announced.
The 40-year-old decided against retirement after his contract in Turin expired this summer and has reached a 12-month agreement to join PSG.
He becomes the first new arrival at Parc des Princes in a summer that has seen PSG's extravagant transfer spending heavily scrutinised by Uefa as part of the governing body's enforcement of Financial Fair Play regulations.
"It is with a great feeling of happiness that I join PSG" Buffon said. "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."
PSG president Nasser Al-Khelaifi added: "We all feel an immense pride in welcoming Gianluigi Buffon into the great Paris Saint-Germain family.
"The immensity of his career, as well as his ambitious personality make him one of the most admired and respected players in world football."
