Buffon: 'I have a contract with Juve'

Gianluigi Buffon is bored with media speculation on his future. “They always say the same things, but I have a contract with Juventus.”

The Italy goalkeeper has repeatedly been linked with a move away from Turin this summer, especially after failing to qualify for Europe.

Likely destinations have included Roma, Arsenal and Manchester United.

“They always say the same things, but I have a contract with Juventus,” declared Buffon today.

He was speaking at a ceremony in Viareggio, where he received the Aldo Olivieri award, named after the goalkeeper who won the 1938 World Cup with Italy.

The shot-stopper also gave his opinion on tonight's Champions League Final between Barcelona, Manchester City and Manchester United.

“I think it'll end in a draw, so will have to be decided on penalties.”

Buffon confirmed he'll marry long-time partner Alena Seredova on June 16 in Prague. The couple already have two children.
