Buffon wants short-term Juventus deal

Juventus goalkeeper Gianluigi Buffon has said he would like to sign a short contract with the club and revealed he felt he could carry on playing at the top level for another two or three years.

Buffon, 34, spoke to Sky Italia after helping his side to a 1-0 win on a very poor pitch at Palermo in what was coach Antonio Conte's first game back on the touchline after his ban ended.

He said he was close to agreeing a new deal and explained: "We have to discuss the length, as I would like a short contract. I don't want to take anyone's money without deserving it.

"I have had an important career, and I think I can continue for another two or three years if I maintain certain motivation and targets. It's about self-esteem, too."

The goalkeeper said he was delighted to see Conte back in the dugout, adding: "Conte's presence is very important, even before kick-off. He ensures nobody can step on to the field lacking concentration or motivation - it's practically impossible with Antonio.

"We should have been more incisive with our attacks today, but winning is what counts and we achieved that.

"The conditions were not helpful. Believe me, it is not as easy as it looks to be a goalkeeper in the rain when there are very few scoring opportunities, as you have to stay sharp."
