Buffon should stay at Juventus, say Goal Singapore readers

The legendary Italian goalkeeper will see his contract run out in 2015 and has yet to decide on his next move
Juventus goalkeeper Gianluigi Buffon has not given any indication as to where his future lies, with his contract at the Turin club set to expire in 2015.

The legendary Italian goalkeeper could even leave the club, according to his agent Silvano Martina.

"He has a contract with Juve and it's easy to associate his name with the Bianconeri," he told CalcioMercato.

"But at the moment, I can't say for certain what's going to happen. Maybe he'll retire, maybe he'll leave, maybe he'll stay.

"I just don't know what's going to happen at the moment."

The 36-year-old will surely not be short of clubs willing to take him on if he does decide to leave Juventus Stadium, while his age will also mean that it will not be a surprise if he does retire.

The majority of Goal Singapore readers, however, believe he should stay at his current club, with 76.9% indicating that he should see out his playing career at Juventus and retire as a club legend. A further 10.3% think he should move to another side, while the remaining 12.8% feel he should retire after his contract ends.

Buffon has been at Juventus since 2001, having firmly established himself at Parma before that. He moved for a world-record fee for a goalkeeper, with the club paying €51 million. He is closing in on 700 career appearances and has won almost everything there is on offer at club level, except for the Champions League.

The 2006 World Cup winner has 138 caps for Italy and is their appearance record-holder, and is widely considered to be one of the best goalkeepers of all time.
