Barcelona considers Buffon move


Barcelona are considering bringing Gianluigi Buffon to the Nou Camp this summer as a back-up for Marc-Andre ter Stegen, according to reports.

Former Juventus goalkeeper Buffon, 41, is leaving French champions Paris Saint-Germain when his contract expires at the end of June after one year at the Parc des Princes. Barcelona will be looking for a new No 2 goalkeeper this summer with Jasper Cillessen, who has been linked with a move to Manchester United, keen to leave the club in search of first-team football.


Buffon, a World Cup winner with Italy in 2006, wants to continue playing and has offers from around the world, including Brazil, China, Germany and Turkey. He is not interested in a move to the Chinese Super League, according to reports in Italy. Fenerbache are the Turkish club to have shown the most concrete interest in signing the veteran.
