Gianluigi Buffon is still considering his future, so Portuguese club Belenenses decided to make a direct appeal on their website. ‘We have an irrefutable proposal for you,’ including a weekly box of Pastel de Nata.

The 43-year-old announced he is leaving Juventus and ready to continue his career elsewhere, so is looking at various offers from Italy and abroad.

Belenenses took the matter into their own hands and made a direct appeal by tweeting Buffon.

“Hello Gianluigi Buffon, we have an irrefutable proposal for you: how about moving to Lisbon and playing in a 4 times national champion that is struggling to return to its place?”

This then linked to an open letter for the Italy goalkeeper on their official website.

“Dear Gigi, We heard that you are looking for a new challenge and receptive to listening to a ‘crazy and stimulating’ proposal.

“Therefore, we decided to present you with something irresistible: how about moving to Lisbon and helping us to quickly return to our place in Portuguese football, the I Liga?

“Our friendship does not come from today. You have known us since at least 2004, the year when with the Italian team you trained daily at Estádio do Restelo, our home and the most beautiful of the sports venues.

“We are sure that you have not forgotten it – how could you? – as well as the incredible view that our sports complex has over the Tagus River. Because you are a man of football and a citizen of the world, you probably knew us before.”

Belenenses cast themselves as the Portuguese Parma, going bankrupt in 2018 and forced to start again from the seventh tier, currently at the top of the fifth.

“We are humble, realistic and honorable. It is not money that we have to offer you, but the possibility of having your name associated with another challenge that only living legends – like you – can embrace with a sense of opportunity.

“You already occupy a place of excellence in the history of football, but here you can ascend to Olympus.

“You will work with the best view of the city of Lisbon, in the most beautiful stadium in the world (and in this you will agree with us, for sure).

“We have a home for our athletes. It is an humble space, but everyone there is available to give you their own bed. Of course, you can always choose a house overlooking the Tagus River, but that is up to you.”

Their contract offer includes an annual family pass to visit museums and art in the city, as well as “a pack of six Pasteis de Belem a week, one of the most popular specialities of Portuguese sweets.”

These are a local version of Pastel de Nata, a delicious custard tart.
