Buffon's coming home

Juventus are close to re-signing club legend Gianluigi Buffon, as reported by Sky Sports Italia.

The 41-year-old shot stopper, who is widely known to be one of the best goalkeepers to have ever played the game, spent 17 years in Turin before leaving for Paris-Saint Germain last summer.

Having made just 25 appearances for the French champions, it looks as though the Italian is now heading back to his homeland.

Should this move come to fruition, he will return to Turin as back-up for current No.1 Wojciech Szczesny, who impressed last term as Juve clinched their eighth consecutive league title.

The Poland international kept 11 clean sheets in total, conceding just 18 league goals throughout the entire campaign.

Buffon will be welcomed back to Turin with open arms this summer, he is arguably the club's biggest legend after winning nine Serie A titles and four Coppa Italia's during his 17 year spell in northern Italy.

The veteran keeper has also been capped 176 times for Italy, winning the World Cup with his country back in 2006. He has won pretty much all there is to win in football, bar one thing: the Champions League.

Buffon PSG
Things didn't quite go to plan for Buffon in Paris.

His move to France with PSG was supposed to help complete his footballing accolades, though things didn't go as planned for Buffon at the Parc des Princes, as the club found themselves dumped out of the prestigious competition by Manchester United in the last-16 phase.

It is understood that Buffon's relationship with club president Andrea Agnelli has helped to get a deal across the line, with it being reported that the 41-year-old has signed a one-year contract with his former employers ahead of the forthcoming 2019-20 campaign.

The World Cup winner's return will signal the end for current No.2 Mattia Perin, who looks set to join either Roma or Sevilla within the next few weeks.

Buffon may not be the only player making the switch to Italy from France, though, as midfielder Adrien Rabiot is also rumoured to be joining the Turin outfit when his contract in Paris expires on July 1.

Having been suspended by the club in December after failing to negotiate a new contract, the France international has been heavily linked with a move to either Juventus or Manchester United.

It is however being reported that the Old Lady will be Rabiot's chosen destination and that a deal for the France international will be completed shortly.

Should Rabiot move to Juve, he will join a long list of top-quality players brought in on a Bosman deal in the previous decade, with Arsenal's Aaron Ramsey also joining on a free this summer.
