Keep or sell Buffon?

Selling Gianluigi Buffon would be a wise financial move for Juventus, but Serafino Ingardia believes the 'keeper is still one of the best in the world.

It is incredible how memories of a great player can sometimes be quickly erased following an injury. As the game goes on, players who were once regarded as the best get quickly forgotten during a spell on the sidelines – even by their own fans.

Buffon to push out Storari?

Juventus goalkeeper Gigi Buffon could make his comeback earlier than expected, leaving Marco Storari to consider his future at the club.

Buffon recently returned to training after a six-month injury lay-off following a major back operation in the summer.

Toni, Floccari or Gilardino for Juve

Juventus plan to sign a striker in the January transfer and have Luca Toni, Sergio Floccari or Alberto Gilardino in their mind, according to La Gazzetta dello Sport.

Gigi Del Neri would like a prolific goalscorer to lead his attack to take some of the burden off the rest of the team.

Luca Cigarini's agent expects his client to be targeted by Juventus should the Bianconeri sell Momo Sissoko in January.

The Sevilla midfielder has been linked with the Old Lady in recent times and Giovanni Bia has done little to cool the rumours of a possible switch.

"Although no negotiations have taken place yet, Cigarini is certainly a name that Juventus would like – especially if Sissoko leaves," the representative told Sky Sport Italia.
