Gianluigi Buffon Receives 'Transfer Offers From SIX European Giants' After Announcing Juventus Exit

Juventus legend Gianluigi Buffon has already attracted interest from six European clubs ahead of leaving the Italian side at the end of the season.


However, Buffon has revealed that he won't renew his current Juventus deal and will leave the Old Lady for a second time in the summer.

According to Italian newspaper Tuttosport, Barcelona are among several European clubs ready to battle it out to secure the services of Buffon.

Buffon's move to the Camp Nou would provide Barcelona manager Ronald Koeman with an experienced back-up option to Marc-Andre ter Stegen.

Tuttosport also reports that the former Italy international is on the radar of newly-crowned Portuguese champions Sporting CP.

Speaking to beIN SPORTS, the former PSG 'keeper said: "My future is clear. This year I will definitively end my long and beautiful experience at Juventus.

"I will either retire or find a situation that motivates me, a different experience to take into consideration.
