Blaise Matuidi has wished Gianluigi Buffon the very best of luck with his new club but warned the veteran he may not be first choice should he choose Paris Saint-Germain.
Buffon is searching for a new club for the first time in 17 years after confirming he will leave Juventus when his contract expires next month.
Ligue 1 champions PSG have been heavily linked with the Italy legend, with his agent Silvano Martina talking up a switch last week.
Former PSG midfielder and current Juve midfielder Matuidi paid tribute to the shot-stopper and wishes him luck wherever he ends up.
“Gigi is an extraordinary guy who has already made a great career. I wish him all the best in Paris or elsewhere,” told reporters.
Matuidi did highlight, however, that PSG may not need Buffon as they already have a solid number one in Alphonse Areola.
He added: “In Paris there is another great goalkeeper called Areola. It will be up to Gigi and the club to make the decision.”
