Italy goalkeeper Gianluigi Buffon is planning to retire after the 2018 World Cup,

Italian media reported on Monday.

Buffon has played 154 times for his country, a national record, and if he plays in the

next World Cup it would be his sixth appearance in the global showpiece

tournament.

“If I can push myself until the 2018 World Cup, I will go on,” said the Juventus

skipper who turns 38 in a couple of days. Buffon, who helped Italy win the 2006

World Cup, has been with Juventus since 2001 after making his Serie A debut with

Parma at the age of 17.

“Buffon is master of his own fate, he can stay at Juventus as long as he wants,” the

club’s CEO Giuseppe Marotta said.
