Buffon: I wanted to stay and rebuild Juventus

The Italy goalkeeper said: "I stayed for an infinite number of reasons.

"First of all, after many years at this club, in this glorious team, to find a better level was practically impossible. And within of me, unavoidably, I like the idea, the ambition of being able to construct something new and in these prestigious colors, as we did some time ago. If I lacked this hunger, then it would have been useless to have stayed."

Asked about interest from Inter Milan, Buffon added: "I never considered the transfer market. I had offers, but I won't say from who. Juve were always first on my mind."
