Gianluigi Buffon during an interview had announced his plans of exit from Juventus and the news spread like wildfire. In the interview, Buffon said that he has no plans of extending his contract and will make an exit from the club this summer. Post this, a while ago, Buffon took to social media and penned an emotional note on social media. The Juventus goalkeeper went on to say that this was not an easy decision to make.

In the note, Buffon further informs that this was a well-thought decision. Buffon further says that no thank you is enough. "I have given everything.
I have received more. The time to come is all to be written. And to live," read a part of the note. Needless to say, the fans are quite disappointed with his decision as Buffon is unarguably one of the best goalkeepers in Serie A. Especially after the fact that Juventus has been knocked out of the UCL 2021-22 and will feature in the Europa League.
