Buffon set for contract talks

Juventus intend to negotiate a new deal with Gianluigi Buffon this summer, but it is likely to involve a pay-cut.

Tuttosport understand that President Andrea Agnelli has already spoken to the Juventus captain after Euro 2012 about the intention to extend his current deal by at least one more year.

The two men are apparently set to meet in the coming days to begin official talks on the subject, with Buffon’s current deal expiring in June 2014.

However, it is believed that the Bianconeri’s strict wage structure for senior members of the squad will also apply to the 34-year-old and that his extra year would come alongside a cut from a current €6m salary down to €4m.
