Speculation Is Beginning To Tilt Buffon City Way

Speculation Is Beginning To Tilt Buffon City Way

Google language translator


Endless speculation surrounding whether Juventus keeper Gianluigi Buffon will join Manchester City in January is slowly, but surely beginning to filter down.

If you believe everything you read, (incidentally I don't) City are prepared to offer the Italian a £240,000-a-week contract, making him easily the best paid player in the Premier League, should he and his current club accept a world record £60m transfer fee.


World Cup winner Buffon

This is what the 30-year-old Italian international shot-stopper told the media when asked about a proposed Eastlands move...

'If a club is willing to pay that much for you, it would be fair to say I will tell my agents to make the deal happen,' said Buffon. 'Juve can go and buy a team full of champions of their own.'

However, Juventus manager Claudio Ranieri poured cold water on the speculation...

'Manchester City's offer for Buffon? Well, if we wait a bit maybe the number of millions will reach 100. At the end of the season, we might even reach 150! No, joking apart, Gigi remains with us. He will not go anywhere.'

City Contact

'There has never been any contact between us and Manchester City, nor any offer from them for Buffon. There's nothing true about this.'added the Juve coach.

Vital Manchester City says...

'Agents are out to get the best deal they possibly can for their player. If City is daft enough to offer anything like the sums of money being banded about, then trust me when I say...'

'...if there is any element of truth to this story, the Italian, capped 89 times for his country will be wearing a City shirt come January.'

There is no doubt Buffon's agent has got wind of the media speculation surrounding a possble City move. Should ADUG stump up the money, Buffon will become a City player in January, mark my words.
