Italy and Juventus legend, Gianluigi Buffon could be all set to make the final move of his career, with Portugal giants, Porto reportedly keen to sign him to replace Iker Casillas in the summer.
The legendary Spaniard suffered a heart-attack in May and confirmed his retirement from the sport at the end of the season, with Tuttosport revealing that Porto are monitoring Buffon who recently left PSG, after the club decided against extending his contract.

The 41-year-old who moved to France from Juventus was not at his best for the French outfit and while he won the Ligue 1 title in his debut season, he once again failed to win the UEFA Champions League, the one trophy that has eluded him in his illustrious career so far.
Despite being 41, Buffon has not hinted at retirement and could be tempted by an offer from Porto who could offer first-team football, which is a real possibility considering that Casillas in all probability will not be there next season.
Widely considered as one of the best goalkeepers in the history of the sport, Buffon spent 17-years at Turin, leading the club to nine Serie A titles, four Coppa Italia's while also appearing 176 times for national team, Italy with whom he won the 2006 World Cup.
