Parma goalkeeper Gianluigi Buffon has signed a new deal with the club.

This was announced by club president Kyle Krause during a press conference at the Ennio Tardini Stadium. The 44-year-old Italian extended his current contract until 2024, reports Parma’s official website. The legendary goalkeeper will be 46 years old when the new contract expires.
