Gianluigi Buffon has returned to Parma 20 years after joining Juventus.

The 43-year-old has signed a two-year contract with Parma – after originally leaving the club in 2001 for what was then a world record fee for a goalkeeper.

“Superman is returning,” Parma said in a tweet.

Buffon made his Serie A debut in Parma in 1995 at the age of 17 and made 168 first-division appearances in his six years with the first team.

In 1999 the club won the Coppa Italia and the UEFA Cup.

Last month, Buffon announced he was leaving Juventus this summer after signing again for the club after a season at Paris Saint-Germain in 2019.
