Former Juventus Star Goalkeeper Gianluigi Buffon Says Thrilled, Motivated by Joining PSG

He may be 40 and have retired from global football but Gianluigi Buffon is about to enter a new phase of his stellar career. "I'll do my best to help the team achieve the best results that can be achieved, but the Champions League won't be an obsession", he said.

On the World Cup, which Italy did not qualify for, Buffon added: "France will get to the final".

Matuidi left PSG for Juve a year ago. "I want to prove I'm still a great goalkeeper".

Hammers table club-record Felipe Anderson bid as Wilshere deal nears completion
The England midfielder signed a three-year deal to join the Hammers on Monday after leaving Arsenal at the end of his contract. It is expected that West Ham and Lazio will eventually thrash out terms that will see Anderson sign for the club-record fee.

"But at the beginning of a season, you can't focus on a goal, only mad people do that and we're not mad here".

The veteran stopper has joined the French champions on a one-year deal with the option of a second season at the Parc des Princes.

New manager Thomas Tuchel now has the likes of Buffon, as well as Kylian Mbappe, Edinson Cavani and Neymar at his disposal in Paris, and Buffon was philosophical about the Brazilian superstar's recent World Cup exit at the hands of semifinalists Belgium.

Michael Gove is '100 percent' behind Theresa May's Brexit plan
May was asked by an opposition lawmaker Monday whether she would contest a vote of confidence if one came rather than resign. There is talk of Davis and Johnson becoming great enemies of May and making life impossible for her from the backbenches.

"I'm very happy to be here", Buffon said as he and his family took in the keeper's new surroundings. I spent 10 years at Parma and 17 at Juventus and created a comfort zone and that doesn't motivate me. I never like being comfortable - I have always looked to challenge myself.

"But nobody assured me that I would be number one. I will play until my body allows me to play".

In theory, Buffon will mentor Areola during his potential two-year stay in Paris, but he recognised that he has been an undisputed starter wherever he has played.

EU official criticizes Trump over attitude toward allies
The NATO summit is likely to be dominated by Trump's insistence that member nations step up and pay more for their joint defence. He later tweeted: "The US doesn't have and won't have a better ally than the EU".

Yet one mindblowing aspect of the new chapter in Buffon's storied career is he is training alongside Weah's son, Timothy.
