Emre Can on Champions contenders

Emre Can believes “this is the most interesting Champions League in recent years” and names the seven main challengers to Juventus.

The Bianconeri are top of the Serie A table and now visit Spain for the first leg of the Champions League Round of 16 against Atletico Madrid.

“These are the games a player wants to take part in, so we are fired up, not worried. I think Juventus have all it takes to win, but the Champions League is a complicated tournament and a difficult one to plan,” the former Liverpool midfielder told Tuttosport.

'No real offers for Icardi'

Inter director Piero Ausilio reportedly confessed “there wasn’t even an inkling of an offer” for Mauro Icardi and the squad turned against him.

The forward was stripped of the captaincy this week amid tension over contract talks with his wife and agent Wanda Nara, who hinted at interest from the likes of Real Madrid, Manchester United, Juventus, Paris Saint-Germain and Chelsea.

He then refused to take part in the Europa League trip to Rapid Vienna and is still not taking part in full training, officially due to injury.

Buffon and Verratti start for PSG

Gianluigi Buffon and Marco Verratti start for PSG against Manchester United, as the goalkeeper becomes the fourth 41-year-old in a Champions League game.

The Round of 16 kicks off at Old Trafford at 20.00 GMT.

There had been concerns over Verratti’s fitness following a long lay-off with repeated injuries, but he made his comeback last week and is placed in the starting XI tonight.

Buffon is chosen rather than Alphonse Areola and becomes the fourth player aged 41 and over to feature in a Champions League match – the second Italian.

Buffon: Love Juve, but PSG...

Gianluigi Buffon has admitted that while he ‘will always love’ Juventus, Paris Saint-Germain gave him his ‘enthusiasm’ back.

Buffon spent 17 years at Juve before joining PSG last summer, and the former Italy goalkeeper credited the Ligue 1 champions for removing ‘negativity’ from his life.  

“My adventure in France? It’s been a beautiful experience so far,” the 41-year-old told La Stampa.

“Reprogramming myself with the enthusiasm I’ve put in has given me a lot and improved me.

Gianluigi Buffon says that while the injured Leonardo Bonucci, Andrea Barzagli and Giorgio Chiellini are ‘indispensable’, Juventus ‘don’t have a supporting cast’.

Bonucci, Barzagli and Chiellini are all sidelined for Juve, just one week before their Champions League last-16 first leg against Atletico Madrid, but Buffon backed Daniele Rugani and Martin Caceres to deliver in the trio’s absence.

Allegri: 'Dybala case is closed'

Paulo Dybala “has apologised and the case is closed,” assured Max Allegri, insisting there’s no split with the Juventus star.

There had been tension after La Joya left the bench to go straight into the locker room after Juve had completed all their substitutions, not waiting for the final whistle of the 3-3 draw with Parma.

This prompted speculation he was at a crossroads, with interest from Real Madrid, Paris Saint-Germain and Manchester United.

Milan biggest European spenders

No European club spent more than Milan in the January transfer window, as they shelled out €70m for Krzysztof Piatek and Lucas Paquetá.

Despite struggling with Financial Fair Play issues, the Rossoneri were very active on the market and brought in two top young players.

Both Paquetá and Piatek cost €35m each, plus bonuses, from Flamengo and Genoa respectively.

Milan are a long way ahead of the next in line among Europe’s biggest clubs, because Paris Saint-Germain only spent €45m on Leandro Paredes.
