Juve laugh off Buffon reports

08 October 2010 11:30
Juventus have dismissed reports goalkeeper Gianluigi Buffon could join Manchester United. Both United and Manchester City, as well as Bayern Munich, have been linked with the Italy international this year. Reports in Italy claimed United were considering making an 18million euros offer to sign Buffon in the January transfer window as they seek a replacement for Edwin van der Sar, who turns 40 later this month. However, Juventus general director Giuseppe Marotta claims Buffon is going nowhere. "I deny any negotiation with United, Buffon is a Juventus player," Marotta told Turin newspaper Tuttosport.
