Juventus re-sign legend Buffon

Serie A champions Juventus  have re-signed club legend Gianluigi Buffon, who left Paris Saint-Germain after just one season.
 
The Italian shot-stopper left the Old Lady in 2018 after spending 17 years in Turn, before joining the Ligue 1 outfit for one season.
 
The 41-year-old completed his medical on Thursday and put pen-to-paper on a one-year deal with the Italian champions.
 
Juve's statement read:
 
After a year away from Turin, Gianluigi Buffon has returned to Juventus, after penning in a one-year contract which will tie him to the club until 30 June 2020.
 
It was 19 May 2018. That was the day when there were tears in everyone’s eyes; when Gigi said goodbye to Juventus, it's fans and vice-versa. It was the bidding of a farewell to someone who was more than just a captain, but a legend and a symbol of the club. 
 
Probably each of us hoped, and in the end, knew that the yarn that united us for so many years was not destined to break. And that was the case.
 
After a year with Paris Saint-Germain, where Gigi registered saves on 73,5% of his attempts, won 13 of 17 games played in Ligue 1, and added a French league title along with a Super Cup to his incredible trophy cabinet, Gigi has officially returned to Juventus.
