The 40-year old goalkeeper said the lanky defender is the best candidate to take over from him having also given a long service service to Juve.
"I've received some offers, some of them very interesting, both to go on playing and outside the pitch".
Veteran Italian goalkeeper Gianluigi Buffon has tendered an apology to referee Michael Oliver for his unsportsmanlike behavior during Juventus' exit in the 2017/18 Champions League.
The Italian World Cup victor, who has been with Juve for 17 years, will lift his ninth Serie A title when they host the already-relegated side at the Allianz Stadium. That said, he does leave Juventus with plenty of silverware.
Lightning get back into series with big road win over Capitals
Sure, the Lightning had a brief lead in Game 2 from about the midpoint of the first period to early in the second. Coach Barry Trotz said Backstrom was a game-time decision before each of the games in the conference final.
Speaking at a news conference on Thursday, he said he was "sorry for offending the referee". Now offers have arrived that are exciting on and off the pitch, and the most important was proposed to me by Agnelli. It was a particular situation and a few days later I confessed the Buffon of that day, with the sentiments and feelings of that night, couldn't help but say those things.
For now I only know that I will play a game on Saturday.
After Italy failed to qualify for next month's World Cup, Buffon, who's the most capped Italy player with 176 appearances, retired from national duties.
I was sorry to have offended him because at the end of the day he is a human being who does a very hard job. I am not someone who carries rancour'. His farewell at global level might come on June 4, when Italy hosts a friendly against the Netherlands in Turin.
Juve had overcome a three-goal deficit in the quarter-final to reach the brink of extra-time in Madrid, but Oliver awarded a late penalty for a Medhi Benatia foul.
