Manchester City To Bid €70m For Buffon

Juventus could lose Gianluigi Buffon to Manchester City as the Premier League side are ready to bid €70m for the Italian goalkeeper, according to Leggo.The Citizens' new Arab owners are looking to take football to the next level as they attempt to bring in a host of the world’s greatest players thanks to their mega spending powers. Doctor Sulaim al-Fahim knows money talks and Buffon is next on his trasfer wishlist. “If we can buy the greatest players in the world then we will; we only want the strongest,” said the chief Leggo claims that the English club are ready to tempt the Old Lady with a mega €70m bid for the experienced shot-stopper. Juventus are not likely to sell, however, given their Champions League ambitions, but such a massive offer is likely to raise some eyebrows in Turin. Buffon holds the record for being the most expensive goalkeeper in the world after Juve splashed out £32m in 2001 to sign him from Parma. Manchester City’s owners are clearly not afraid to splash the cash and any serious offers may be considered. Juve, though, will be concerned by the threat of losing a key man.
