Juventus welcomed Buffon in a Twitter post as Buffon said he is happy to be back to Juventus.

"Hi everyone, I wanted to greet you once again. I am happy to have returned home and to have the opportunity again to embrace you and to be embraced by you," Buffon said in the video.

"After a year away from Turin, Gianluigi Buffon has returned to Juventus, after penning in a one-year contract which will tie him to the club until 30 June 2020," Juventus said on website to confirm Buffon's arrival.
