Gianluigi Buffon signed a new deal with Serie A giants Juventus which will take him into his nineteenth season in Turin.

The 42-year-old joined the Bianconeri from Parma in the summer of 2001 for a world record fee.

Aside from a one year stint with PSG, Buffon has made over 500 appearances for the Old Lady in the time since.

Despite playing back-up to former Arsenal keeper Wojciech Szczesny and approaching his mid 40s, Buffon has signed a new one-year deal at the club.

The World Cup winner will remain at the club until the end of the 2020/21 campaign at least.

The Italian has been at the club for 16 years having joined from Livorno way back in 2004.

Both men aim to help Juventus secure a whopping ninth consecutive Scudetto this season.

Meanwhile, the Serie A champions also remain firmly in the running to secure Champions League glory.

Juve will take part in the Champions League knockout tournament in Portugal as they face Lyon on August 8.
