Buffon never tempted by Man City riches

Gianluigi Buffon would never have swapped Juventus for Manchester City despite the money on offer, reports the Daily Mail. City were keen to take Buffon to Eastlands in a deal that included a £20million transfer fee and a £13m annual salary for the Italian keeper.

"Manchester City were interested, but with all respect, it was not for me.

"I have a family and things to think about, I would never have gone, even if they doubled my wages. With all respect for money, some things in life are priceless."
