Speaking at a news conference on Thursday, he said he was "sorry for offending the referee".
On Saturday afternoon, Juventus will face Hellas-Verona in Turin in the 38th and last game of the regular season, after winning its seventh title last Sunday.
"Next week, after a few days of calm reflection, I will make a definite and certain decision". Buffon will have plenty more appealing offers - both on and off the pitch.
Buffon started his career in 1995 at Parma, where he helped the club win the Uefa Cup and Coppa Italia in 1999, before sealing a move to Juventus in 2001.
This is the end of a wonderful journey that I have shared with people who really care about me. "I am a competitive animal and I wouldn't be able to live or feel at ease in that situation", he said.
"He is a boy who is very smart", added Buffon.
It was a rollercoaster season for Buffon with Italy failing to qualify for the World Cup finals for the first time in six decades. Acknowledging that he had received "interesting proposals", it now seems clear that the former Italian worldwide may be yet prolong his playing days. I found within myself, also thanks to them, the strength to say I want this great career to become a unique one.
He has won nine Serie A titles, all with Juventus, the only player to do so.
Juve president Agnelli has confirmed the keeper is considering offers from other clubs. There must be some temptation for every team, including Liverpool, to snap Buffon up.
"If I thought the Serie A unbeaten record was all down to me, I'd have to be locked up!" Only Paolo Maldini has made more appearances in Serie A than Buffon, who has 639.
The captain's armband, which Buffon has worn since Alessandro Del Piero's departure in 2012, will be handed to another veteran, defender Giorgio Chiellini. Not only did Champions League success elude him in controversial style, Italy also missed out on the 2018 World Cup, eliminated by Sweden after a playoff.
