Italy great Buffon to leave Juventus

Would these Premier League clubs sign Buffon?

Italy and Juventus captain Gianluigi Buffon will hold a news conference on Thursday when the goalkeeper is expected to announce his retirement. It's a very emotional day for me and I'm here off the back of an extraordinary and wonderful journey, shared with people who have cared about me greatly.

He also won the World Cup with Italy in 2006.

"I'm his sister, I love him very much and I'm biased, but I really don't think it's time for goodbye".

"I've told him this so many times, but Gigi is a good guy he just laughs and nearly always replies: "maybe it's better this way". "As his sister and a former athlete I want to hear him say: "I'm stopping because I don't have it anymore", but that's not how it is". I've had a great career anyway. I'm glad you came in so many. But deep down I feel calm and at peace because I know I'm naturally curious.

"After all, players like us, who have lived the game intensely, have to keep their minds occupied and have a reason to get up, something to fight for".

'The only problem is that my life has been organised for me for 23 years.

"To award such a doubtful, or super doubtful, penalty just ahead of the final whistle and destroy the work of a team who gave absolutely everything you have to have a rubbish bin instead of your heart", he said.

Buffon's career has nevertheless been more about the highs than the lows and, nearly 23 years since making his debut on November 19, 1995, for Parma against AC Milan, he bows out considered as one of the greatest goalkeepers of all time.

Asked if he had ever thought about playing overseas, Buffon said: "I would have liked to because I like being around different people, other ways of life, of thinking".

"As a figure in sports, I didn't and still don't want to leave Italy as long as I don't have to".
