Buffon again dismisses Manchester United rumours
Monday 11 October 2010
Juventus and Italy goalkeeper Gianluigi Buffon has again dismissed rumours linking him with a move to Manchester United next summer.
The 32-year-old continues to be mentioned as a possible replacement for Edwin van der Sar, but Buffon insists that there is nothing concrete in the speculation.
He told Sky Italia: “Buffon has nothing to decide.
“I'm at the Juventus' disposal and they are the ones who will decide what will happen. I have a deal here until 2013.
“We are in October and it's too soon to face certain talks. There are still eight months of the season left.
“Manchester United are a really great side, but they have never shown a direct interest. They are merely press rumours.”
