Juventus sign new goalkeeper to replace Buffon

PSG will unveil Gianluigi Buffon on Monday, according to reports in France.

The Italian legend left Juventus in the summer after 17 years with the Old Lady and has since been linked with a move to Ligue 1.

According to French newspaper La Parisien, Buffon will arrive in Paris on Friday for a medical, and all being well will be presented as a PSG player on Monday.

He would become the first signing under the new PSG manager, Thomas Tuchel, who replaced now-Arsenal boss Unai Emery.

Buffon is widely regarded as being one of the greatest goalkeepers of all time, winning the 2006 World Cup with Italy along with nine Serie A titles.

Now the former Italian international is said to be on the verge of signing a one-year contract at PSG with an option for a second season.
