Buffon, now aged 42, has made 13 appearances in all competitions this season and holds the record for the most Serie A appearances in the club’s history.

He became the second-oldest player in Champions League history when he featured against Bayer Leverkusen in this campaign’s group stage.

After agreeing the contract extension, Buffon said: “Probably each of us hoped, and basically knew, that the thread that united us for so many years was not destined to break.”

The club added: “Super Gigi is proof that age is only a number. With today’s renewal, if it is even possible, he is even more Bianconero – and we can only be happy with it. A legend. A player, who is simply, infinite.”
