Rabiot: Buffon and Ronaldo convinced me about Juventus

Adrien Rabiot admits Gigi Buffon convinced him about a move to Juventus when they were together last season at PSG.

The pair are now teammates at Juve and Rabiot has revealed how the veteran keeper influenced his thinking.

He said, "When I was in Paris, I talked about my future with Gigi (Buffon). He knew I would leave PSG and advised me Juventus.

"He explained to me that this would be the ideal choice. At Juve, I can gain experience and improve my game.

"Playing with (Cristiano) Ronaldo is an honour. He makes you win titles and his presence convinced me even more to choose Turin."
