Agent Silvano Martina confirmed Gianluigi Buffon is considering a return to Parma this summer. ‘I’ll see him this week to talk about the future’.

Buffon confirmed in May that he leaves Juventus this summer and the rumours regarding the veteran’s future started immediately.

The 43-year-old returned to Juventus after one season with Paris Saint-Germain in 2018-19 and has spent two years as back-up to Wojciech Szczesny at the Allianz Stadium.

Buffon played an important part when the Bianconeri picked up the Coppa Italia in 2020-21, but Juventus finished fourth in Serie A and Andrea Pirlo was sacked after the campaign.

Max Allegri returns to the club this summer and the other two veterans Leo Bonucci and Giorgio Chiellini seem set to continue with the Old Lady.

But Buffon has already decided to leave the club, as he would like to finish his career as a starter and reports of a return to Parma in Serie B have emerged.

“Of course, Parma is a viable path,” Martina told Parma Today. “But it doesn’t have to me who eventually decide for him.

“Everything is still open, Gigi is considering all the hypotheses. Among these, Parma are there too.

“I’ll see him this week to talk about the future. Let’s see what will happen.”

Buffon played 220 games for Parma, where he won the Coppa Italia, the Supercoppa Italiana and the UEFA Cup.
