Juventus goalkeeper Gianluigi Buffon has agreed a two-year extension to his contract with the Serie A champions.

Juventus confirmed that the Italy keeperwill stay with the Turin club until at least 2008.

“This is a solid club and a winning team and that motivates me,” Buffon told the club’s website.

“It really pleases me that they see me as a person who can be part of a cycle here,” he added.

The Italian news agency ANSA said Buffon had accepted a cut in his salary as part of the new contract.

“That is a choice made in line with what my team mates have done and is the right signal to send to Italian football,” Buffon told ANSA.
