Former Juventus goalkeeper Gianluigi Buffon will complete his move to Paris Saint-Germain in the next few days, according to Sky in Italy.
The 40-year-old Italy legend, who left Juventus after 17 years at the end of the season, has been in talks over joining the French Ligue 1 champions since May.
Sky in Italy understand the Parc des Princes has always been the former Parma goalkeeper's preferred destination despite newspaper speculation that Liverpool and Manchester United were interested.
PSG delayed the move for the Italian while they waited to find out the extent of Buffon's ban following his red card and behaviour during Juventus' Champions League quarter-final against Real Madrid last season.
He will serve a three-match ban for the sending off and protesting to referee Michael Oliver about the Englishman's decision to award a stoppage-time penalty against the Italian side, which led to Real's winning goal.
Buffon captained Juve to a seventh straight Serie A title and fourth consecutive Italian Cup triumph in his final season in Turin.
