Gianluigi Buffon, regarded as one of the greatest goalkeepers of all time, wants to leave Italian league's multiple champions Juventus at the end of this season.

A club spokeswoman confirmed that the 43-year-old had said this in an interview to Qatar-based broadcaster Bein Sports on Tuesday.

Buffon will either stop playing or find another opportunity that "motivates me to play or have a different life experience".

"This beautiful and very long experience with Juve will come to a definitive end this year," Buffon was quoted as saying by DPA.

"I think I gave Juve everything. I've received everything and more. We have reached the end of a cycle," he added.

Buffon's future has been the subject of speculation in the Italian media in recent weeks. At Juventus, he is currently number two behind Polish keeper Wojciech Szczesny.

In the current Serie A season, Buffon has made seven appearances.

With the exception of a one-season stint at Paris Saint-Germain, Buffon has played at Juve since 2001, winning Serie A title 10 times.

With more than 650 Serie A appearances to his name, he is a record-breaking player in the league.

Buffon was playing for the national team when it won the 2006 World Cup.
