Buffon, 40, has joined PSG after a legendary career at Juve.

"We shall all get game time during the season and I shall do all I can to put the others in the best possible conditions".

PSG are also yet to win the tournament despite huge investment in their squad - including a world-record deal for Neymar - and domestic dominance, but Buffon is not exclusively focusing on European titles. Today, I arrive in Paris with the enthusiasm of a child.

"I have followed PSG the most for the past few years now".

"At the start of the season, we can not immediately target only the Champions League - it would be madness".

"I have always been a player who has earned his starting place on the field", added Buffon, who will seek to dislodge Alphonse Areola, who pushed German Kevin Trapp down to number two last season.

The 18-year-old U.S. worldwide is now the one looking to make a lasting impression after three appearances for PSG's first team last season.

The Three Lions booked their spot in the semi-finals of the competition with a 2-0 win over Sweden on Saturday in Samara. With his absence, coach Martinez may have to change his formation.

"I've come to an ambitious club, where everyone wants to win". "Here there is a great ambition for successful results".

Buffon sees PSG as his own challenge and hopes to emerge from it stronger, having played his entire career, until now, in his home country.

"I'm very happy to be here", Buffon said as he and his family took in the keeper's new surroundings. "In one month, I will know more about the squad, and I will improve - I was unable to refuse that". "In Turin, I was in a considerable comfort zone".

"I prefer to play on as long as my body allows me to", he continued.

He made 176 appearances for Italy - a European record - and was voted Serie A's goalkeeper of the year 12 times.

Buffon remains as PSG's only new signing so far this summer.
