Buffon in new Man Utd link

Posted on 23/10/2010


Gigi Buffon’s fiancée has reportedly been looking at houses in Manchester, fuelling rumours of a transfer to United.

According to Tuttosport newspaper, Czech model Alena Seredova has been viewing different houses in the Manchester area and investigating schools for their children.

It certainly is not the first time that the Juventus goalkeeper has been linked with a future at Old Trafford.

He is considered the perfect heir to Edwin van der Sar and would be available for €20m plus a contract worth €6m per season.

Buffon has been out of action for the entire campaign and will only return in January after undergoing surgery to rectify a long-standing back problem.

He had rejected a transfer to Manchester City last year, but has always said he’d like to experience the Premier League.

Buffon was recently found to be the best goalkeeper of the last 25 years, according to statistics centre the Iffhs.
