Juventus goalkeeper Gianluigi Buffon has dismissed speculations linking him with a summer exit from Turin.
The veteran keeper has entered the final year of his contract with the Old Lady, which led to rumous suggesting he could leave the Bianconeri for a new challenge.
However, the 34-year-old states that he will be signing a new three-year deal with the club.
“The delay in putting pen to paper is down to priorities,” Buffon told La Gazzetta dello Sport. “Those of the team and mine.
“Let’s get these important games out of the way first and then we’ll think about the signature. There will be no surprises, I’ll stay for another three years.
“I think I’ll still be able to make the difference over that period of time.”
Gianluigi Buffon joined Juventus in a bumper deal from Parma in the summer of 2001 and has since enjoyed a lot of success with the most popular club in Italy.
He has won three Serie A and four Coppa Italia titles with the Bianconeri, while winning the 2006 World Cup with Italy.
Buffon has yet to lift the Champions League trophy and plans to make that right before he retires.
The Italy international has made a total of 336 league appearances for the Old Lady.
