Buffon enjoyed a fantastic season with Juventus, as he led the club to the top defensive record in Serie A and recorded 24 clean sheets in all competitions.

The 37-year-old nearly led the Biancaneri to a treble, but came up short against Barcelona in the Champions League final after securing the Scudetto and the Copa Italia. Buffon has stated a desire to play for three or four more seasons, and Juventus will be happy to keep him around if he keeps playing at this level.
