Gianluigi Buffon may leave Serie B side Parma in the summer after only a year in order to have one final experience abroad.
The 43-year-old Italian shot stopper, who will turn 44 in five days, re-joined Parma with a smile last summer, making a grand return to his first professional club. Things have not gone as planned, however, and the Emilian side sit 13th in the Serie B table, closer to the relegation zone than the top spots.
As reported by SerieBNews, Parma’s poor results could see Buffon leave the Serie B club at the end of the season, despite the fact that his contract expires with the club in 2023.
The veteran goalkeeper is interested in having one final experience with a club abroad before hanging up his gloves, possibly taking Lorenzo Insigne’s decision after the Napoli winger decided to join Toronto FC on a free transfer.
Updates are expected over the coming weeks, but it’s likely that Buffon will wave goodbye to Italian football later this year.
