Porto or Leeds for Buffon?

Porto and Leeds United are reportedly in a two-horse race to sign former Juventus and Italy goalkeeper Gianluigi Buffon.

According to Corriere della Sera, Porto have made Buffon a lucrative offer for him to replace Iker Casillas, who is expected to retire following his recent heart attack.

However, the newspaper writes the 41-year-old could be swayed by the challenge of taking Leeds back into the Premier League.

What seemed to be no more than a rumour now appears to have some substance, with Whites boss Marcelo Bielsa prepared to do ‘anything and everything’ to get his team promoted.

Il Corriere concludes the track leading the Paris Saint-Germain old boy to Brazilian side Fluminense is ‘closed’, although it does not rule out others coming into the picture.
