Buffon agent in no contract rush

The agent of Gianluigi Buffon says that there is no meeting planed with Juventus to discuss a contract extension.

Buffon has 18 months left on his Turin deal and there have been reports that negotiations were on the horizon for a renewal until 2016.

“For the moment, there are no meetings pencilled in with Juventus,” his representative Silvano Martina told TMW on Tuesday.

“To be honest, that is to be expected given that the present agreement ends in 2013.

“There is plenty of time to sit down around a table to find a solution. It’s only right that Juve and Buffon concentrate on the championship for now.”

The Italian international, 34, joined Juventus in the summer of 2001 from Parma for a fee of £32m.
