Second-tier Italian club, Parma have re-signed legendary goalkeeper, Gianluigi Buffon, 20 years after he joined Juventus.

The 43-year-old called time on his career in Turin this season after he joined them in 2001 for €52 million, a then world record fee for a goalkeeper.

“Superman returns,” Parma said in a tweet to confirm the deal.
