The goalkeeper moved from Parma to Juventus in 2001 for a fee worth £33 million. Buffon is a legendary figure in Italian football and has held the title of ‘most expensive goalkeeper’ for 15 years. The keeper has made over 500 appearances for the club and won 6 Serie A titles during his time there. Buffon even stuck by the club when they were relegated to the Italian second division in 2006 after the match fixing scandal. Buffon has been captain of Juventus since 2012 and must be considered an excellent signing despite the price tag. The keeper was also a major part of the Italian side which won the 2006 World Cup.
