Juventus have developed some top-class talent over the years, from Pavel Nedved and Zinedine Zidane to Paul Pogba and Paulo Dybala.
One man who is undoubtedly assured of his place in the club's history is Gianluigi Buffon, and the iconic goalkeeper is still going strong at the age of 39.
The Juve captain has racked up 39 more appearances this season and has been a key part of arguably the most formidable defensive unit in Europe alongside Leonardo Bonucci, Giorgio Chiellini and Andrea Barzagli.

Not only are Juve are set to win a remarkable sixth consecutive Serie A title, but they're well-placed to reach a second Champions League final in three years after the 2-0 win in Monaco.
Buffon has seen many players come and go during his near 16-year stay with The Old Lady, and he's now revealed the star who he wishes never left him in Turin.
The player Buffon wishes was still at Juve
There's one man who stands out to the Italian legend as someone who could have been "the best man" for Juventus, and his name is Alvaro Morata.
"He was a guy I loved a lot and wanted to help him, to give him security. He deserved the help of a companion and I have great affection for him."
Gigi continued: "His move to Real (Madrid); for me it was a disappointment because we lost a great talent of an age that would allow him to mature and finally to devote himself. He could be the best man for Juventus."
Morata at Juve
Having failed to break into Real Madrid's starting XI, Morata left the Bernabeu and joined Juve back in 2014 for around €20 million, becoming an instant hit in Italy.
The Spanish striker scored 15 goals in his debut campaign and backed that up with 12 more the following season before Real snapped him back up last summer for €30 million.
Morata has predominantly found himself behind Karim Benzema once again in the centre-forward pecking order, yet that hasn't stopped him from registering 18 goals so far this term - his best-ever return.
Zidane hasn't started the 24-year-old on a regular basis and there'll most certainly be speculation surrounding his future at the end of the season.
With Morata's talent and potential, there's no doubt that he can be the main man for one of European football's biggest teams, and Buffon would clearly love him to return to Juve.
The Italian champions currently have a nine-point lead over second-place Roma in Serie A, while Madrid are level on points with arch rivals Barcelona in La Liga (having played a game less).
It's likely that Buffon will be reunited with Morata in this season's Champions League final next month after both Juve and Real recorded impressive first leg victories.
