Buffon: I could leave Juve

Gianluigi Buffon has acknowledged the possibility that he could leave Juventus as speculation persists over his future.

Buffon, 33, has reportedly been told he will have to take a pay-cut if he is to remain with Juve and Italian newspaper La Repubblica recently claimed he was likely to choose between a summer move to either Roma or Arsenal.

The goalkeeper's agent, Silvano Martina, said this week that he was unsure whether he would remain in Turin but said he had not had any contact with Arsenal.

"I don't know [if he will stay]," he told "We will have to evaluate things with the club. What we do know is that he still has a two-year deal there.

"There are no contacts with Arsenal. I know that they need a goalkeeper, and of course they are a very important club, but I have not had any contacts."

Martina added that there has been no "contact from the Manchester-based clubs".

Buffon has also stressed that he has had no dealings with any interested parties but added weight to the notion he is considering his options.

Asked if he would be at Juventus for life, Buffon told Italian TV show Chiambretti Night: "That could be considered as true but it is not totally correct."

He added: "I don't think I'm a man for the transfer market - you can't make money on a 33-year-old. Nevertheless, I do think that I have still got four or five years left in me at the top level.

"No other clubs have contacted me, but if there was a possibility of a move then I would discuss the matter with [Juve director general] Giuseppe Marotta."

Roma could be set for an injection of funds as New England Sports Ventures partner Thomas DiBenedetto closes in on a club takeover, and Buffon believes that will be positive for Serie A.

He said: "It'll be important that someone like Thomas DiBenedetto, with his economical power, enters the world of Italian football."
