Juventus are reportedly considering offering goalkeeper Gianluigi Buffon a one-year contract extension

Such a deal would keep him with Maurizio Sarri's side until he is 43, thereby further extending the career of one of the 21st century's best shot-stoppers.

The iconic keeper returned to the club in the summer after a one-year stint at Paris Saint-Germain, where he made 24 appearances in all competitions under Thomas Tuchel.

Buffon has only featured in three Serie A games for Juve since coming back, largely playing second fiddle to former Arsenal keeper Wojciech Szczesny.

However, Tuttosport reports that the club are considering keeping the 41-year-old around for another year because he provides a solid option from the bench and he has the experience to help with the development of the club's younger players.

The former Parma keeper made 433 appearances for the Old Lady in a first spell which spanned just over 17 years.
