Juventus concern as Buffon faces back surgery
Juventus goalkeeper Gigi Buffon is facing surgery.
The 32-year-old World Cup winner suffered a slightly herniated disc during the warm up before Italy's warm-up match against Paraguay on Monday.
Buffon will have an operation to relieve the pressure on his sciatic nerve.
Juventus have already anticipated the need for surgery by opening negotiations with Milan for Marco Storari, whose average rating was the best in Serie A last season.
