Parma re-sign Buffon 20 years after selling him to Juventus

Second-tier Italian club, Parma have re-signed legendary goalkeeper, Gianluigi Buffon, 20 years after he joined Juventus.

The 43-year-old called time on his career in Turin this season after he joined them in 2001 for €52 million, a then world record fee for a goalkeeper.

“Superman returns,” Parma said in a tweet to confirm the deal.

Buffon, with over 1,100 career appearances, holds the record for the longest streak without conceding a goal in Serie A history, achieving over 12 league matches; he did not concede a goal in 974 consecutive minutes during the 2015–16 season, achieving the most consecutive clean sheets (10) during that run.

Although Buffon joined French side Paris Saint Germain in 2018, he returned to Juventus the following season, where he won his 10th Serie A title.
