|Gigi Buffon and Andrea Barzagli will renew their Juventus contracts until June 2018, it’s reported.
Sky Sport Italia claim the announcement will be made tomorrow.
Buffon’s current deal holds him to the club until June 2017, so it would be a one-year extension.
The goalkeeper will be 40 years old in 2018 and has already said he hopes to retire after playing the next World Cup.
Barzagli celebrated his 35th birthday on Sunday and his contract was due to expire at the end of this season.
He has been a regular in the back three and showed few of the fitness problems suffered by teammate Giorgio Chiellini.
This convinced the club to add another two years to his contract.
These two deals effectively mean Buffon and Barzagli will see out their careers with the Bianconeri shirt.
