Juventus' Italian goalkeeper Gianluigi Buffon gives the thumb up during the UEFA Champions League quarter-final second leg football match between Real Madrid CF and Juventus FC at the Santiago Bernabeu stadium in Madrid. On Wednesday, an interview with Gerard Pique saw the Juventus goalkeeper admit he did not know if his career was over, and less than 24 hours later this event did little to clarify whether or not the 40-year-old was indeed at the end of his playing days.

Buffon has spent his illustrious career in Italy, having swapped boyhood club Parma for Juventus in 2001. The World Cup victor says he's had a number of interesting proposals.

He also celebrated capturing Serie A and Coppa Italia glory last week - his seventh successive Scudetto and fourth consecutive Italian cup triumph.
