Buffon's Juventus career came to an end when his contract expired in June, and the Bianconeri wanted to move on with Wojciech Szczesny and Mattia Perin as the club's new goalkeeping duo.
Rather astoundingly, George Weah was actually on the pitch when Buffon was thrust into the Parma first team for the very first time in 1995.
Gianluigi Buffon had his official unveiling as a Paris Saint-Germain player today and the scenes outside the Parc des Princes were different gravy. "I have followed the club's incredible progression in recent years, and I know what dreams PSG and its fans hold in their hearts". I am going to bring all my energy, all my experience and all of my thirst to win to help my new club achieve all the great objectives it has set out for the future. "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".
"PSG intrigued me a lot because of the talent in the team, but they were not enough to make the leap".
Fire likely cause of 2016 EgyptAir crash, French investigators say
In a press conference on the day of the crash, Egypt's civil aviation minister Sherif Fathy said a terrorist attack was most likely behind the crash.
"Neymar can come back here with competitive anger and a desire for revenge after the disappointment in Russian Federation".
"I played only a year with him but I have affection for him", said the veteran goalkeeper.
"I prefer to play on as long as my body allows me to", he continued.
Buffon is expected to be in PSG's squad for the International Champions Cup fixtures against Bayern Munich, Arsenal and Atletico Madrid in Austria and Singapore this summer. Over two decades later and the 12-time Serie A goalkeeper of the year is now a PSG player.
