Buffon concedes he may leave

Gigi Buffon insists he hasn't received any offers from other clubs, but he has failed to rule out a summer exit from Juventus.

Speaking on Italian TV show Chiambretti Night, which will be aired this evening, the Italy international was questioned on his future.

"Juve for life or I leave? That could be considered as true but it is not totally correct," the goalkeeper noted.

"I don't think I'm a man for the transfer market, you can't make money on a 33-year-old," he continued.

"Nevertheless, I do think that I have still got four or fives 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 Giuseppe Marotta."

The latter is Juventus' director general, a man who is reportedly trying to get the former Parma net-minder to take a cut in salary.

Buffon has been linked with the American revolution at Roma, a takeover which the custodian seems in favour of.

"It'll be important that someone like Thomas Di Benedetto, with his economical power, enters the world of Italian football."

Asked to comment on Juventus' struggles this term, Buffon claimed that their difficulties are not just with the ball at their feet.

"Boss Gigi Del Neri is doing all he can, even if we now have problems that we didn't have before," he stated.

"Our self belief right now is not great. I think we have psychological problems because we don't have the same issues while we are away with the national team."
