If Juventus were to release Gianluigi Buffon at the end of the season, the Italian international has expressed a preference for a move to the Premier League. The 32-year-old is under contract with the Turin giants for three more years but has been linked with Arsenal, Manchester United and Manchester City.

Buffon told Italy's Sky Sport 24: "If I had to leave, I think England would be my destination.

"My desire to leave Juve is equal to that of Juve's will to have me leave.

"At this time there is nothing [to discuss] but there are two weeks to go [before the end of the season] and anything can happen.

"Juve always has the priority and we will see if we will decide for our paths to continue together."
