Gianluigi Buffon: In talks over new deal

Juventus goalkeeper Gianluigi Buffon is close to agreeing a short-term contract extension with the Serie A champions.

Buffon recently registered his 100th appearance in European competition as Juve qualified for the last 16 of the Champions League, but revealed he is not seeking a long contract.

The 34-year-old told juventus.com: "We need to speak about its length.

"I want it to be a short-term deal because I don't need reassurance; on the contrary, I think it's better to have motivation. In any case we're down to the final details."

Juventus are currently four points clear of Inter Milan at the top of Serie A after beating Palermo 1-0 on Sunday.
