Buffon confirms Porto offer

Gianluigi Buffon has received an offer from FC Porto, confirmed his agent, but the goalkeeper “will make a decision in around 10 days.”

The shot-stopper is a free agent after turning down a contract extension with Paris Saint-Germain and has hinted he’s looking for a return to Italy.

However, so far the most credible proposal has been from the Portuguese champions, who’d bring him in to replace Iker Casillas.

“We know there is interest and someone close to Porto has contacted us,” agent Silvano Martina told Portuguese station RTP.

“Buffon wants to play for another year and Porto are a club he likes, but he has four children and transferring his whole family is something that he needs to reflect on.

“It’s true, he already played with Sergio Conceicao and it’d be nice to have him as a Coach. Porto are a big club, among the most important in Europe and with a strong history behind them.

“Buffon will make a decision in around 10 days.”

Other potential options for the former Juventus captain are Atalanta, Parma and Brescia.
