However, Buffon shocked the world by instead choosing to sign a two-year contract with PSG in one final attempt to lift the Champions League.

"I had always hoped that something would happen", the ex-Italy worldwide added.

"I stopped counting", Buffon said.

"I think I can also help PSG to grow a bit on the pitch and then we can aim for even more important goals".

The 40-year-old goalkeeper was expected to retire this summer following a stellar 17-year spell with I Bianconeri. "But when the season begins you can't think of enveloping all this in the aim for the Champions League because that would be complete craziness and we're not insane here". "They have some extraordinarily talented players and an extraordinary coach".

The nine-time Serie A victor was rumoured to be offered an off-field role at Juve but instead signed a one-year deal with the French champions. "Here there is a great ambition for successful results".

New manager Thomas Tuchel now has the likes of Buffon, as well as Kylian Mbappe, Edinson Cavani and Neymar at his disposal in Paris, and Buffon was philosophical about the Brazilian superstar's recent World Cup exit at the hands of semifinalists Belgium.

Buffon sees PSG as his own challenge and hopes to emerge from it stronger, having played his entire career, until now, in his home country.

Last week the former player of Juventus and Italy Gianluigi Buffon has signed an agreement with the French PSG.

"Nobody promised me the number one shirt". "In Turin, I was in a considerable comfort zone".

"I played only a year with him but I have affection for him", he said.

He made 176 appearances for Italy - a European record - and was voted Serie A's goalkeeper of the year 12 times.
