Gianluigi Buffon Admits He Rejected Moves To Arsenal And Manchester United

share on:

Juventus goalkeeper Gianluigi Buffon says he has turned down three concrete offers from Premier League clubs in his career and decided to remain in Italy.

“From what I know, there have been three serious times when English clubs made an approach for me,” he said in quotes carried by theDaily Mail.

“Two of them were when I was a young player at Parma, and I know Alex Ferguson and Arsene Wenger asked about me – and then, when Manchester City was taken over, I know they approached Juventus.

“There are many reasons why none of the deals happened. Even though the Premier League is a special league, I have always wanted to stay loyal to Juventus. I have always been very successful here. I would not have changed anything.”

Buffon has won 10 Serie A titles at Juve, and this Saturday gives him the opportunity to lift a first Champions League title, if his side can beat Real Madrid in Cardiff.
