Juve rubbish Buffon sale

April 5, 2011 - 0:0

Juventus insist that they have no plans to sell goalkeeper Gianluigi Buffon this summer.

The Italian recently hinted that he could look to move on and as a result his Serie A club have recently been linked with Ajax's Maarten Stekelenburg.
Premier League Arsenal have been credited with an interest in Buffon, who was replaced by Marco Storari in Sunday's win over Roma due to illness.
But Juventus director general Giuseppe Marotta has dismissed suggestions of selling their No.1.
""We will be counting on Buffon for the present and the future,"" Marotta said after the win over Roma.
No decision ""We regularly talk with the player himself and his agent Silvano Martina. It is not our intention to sell him.""
But Marotta has implied that no decision has been made regarding the future of Juventus manager Luigi Del Neri following a disappointing domestic and European campaign.
Outgoing Bayern Munich manager Louis van Gaal has been reported to be set to move to Italy, despite the Dutchman's insistence that he is planning a sabbatical.
""Del Neri has a contract and he's done his work as best he can up until now,"" said Marotta.
""There have been a lot of difficulties and misfortune, but evaluations will need to be made with him further down the line.
""We have started a project together, but I don't think he is to blame for the league position we find ourselves in.""
