Gianluigi Buffon has rubbished suggestions he could leave Juventus to join Manchester City.
The Abu Dhabi United Group’s takeover at City has seen the Premier League club linked with a host of football’s biggest names, and having already broken the British transfer record fee to prise Brazilian striker Robinho from under the noses of Chelsea, there are reports of a world record bid of 360m for Buffon in January.
However, the 30-year-old has brushed off the speculation he could sign for City.
“It’s a journalist’s fantasy,” said Buffon.
“If an offer like that one arrived, I believe Juve would look at the numbers. But I doubt it would ever arrive.”
