Mandzukic is now a key player for the European champs.
âJuventus wanted me in 2012,â the player told Extra Time. âI was proud of their interest in me because they are a top club and I admired Gigi Buffon as a boy.
âBuffon is the best, I liked his stature and style.
âJuventus were interested in me and I was interested in them,â he continued. âBut I think my transfer fee was the problem."
