The move happened way back in 2001 when Juventus paid £33M to Parma for the services of the then 23-year-old goalkeeping sensation Gianluigi Buffon’s signature. The record stood for a little over 16 years and was only overcame by Ederson’s move to Manchester City like mentioned above.

The signing proved to be a valuable one and the player has gone on to record over 600 appearances for the club in all competitions and won around 17 major trophies for the club during his time. 

Buffon is the only active player with the highest number of league titles in Italy and will look to add up a Champions League medal to his coveted cabinet, after faltering at the final stage on two previous occasions, when his side take on Real Madrid in Cardiff on the 4th of June.
