According to Gianluca Di Marzio, Juventus goalkeeper Gianluigi Buffon is set to renew his current contract with Juventus till 2018. The Italian goalkeeper, who has been at the club since 2001, has become a real fan favourite during his time with the Bianconeri and has established himself as one of the best keepers of his generation.

He has won the Serie A 7 times with Juventus and has also reached the final of the Champions League twice. Buffon was also part of Italy’s World Cup winning side in 2006 and has the second most appearances for Juventus, in all competitions.

With this being said, it will certainly be to many Juventus fans delight, that the goalkeeper is set to renew his contact with the club. The 38-year-old was rumoured to be thinking about retirement but now looks as if he will play on until he reaches the big 40.
