Juventus keeper Buffon concerned over Real Madrid mega spending

Juventus goalkeeper Gigi Buffon admits concerns over the mega spending of Real Madrid and Premiership clubs.

"We need to stop this endless rush towards multi-million pound spending in football," slammed the Juventus goalkeeper.

"When Juve paid £30m for me in 2001, there was an era of plenty, but now there is a global financial crisis. Circumstances have changed.

"Football is played on a Sunday, then over the rest of the week you walk around and see the difficulties people are having.

"I confess in those circumstances I feel uncomfortable. One needs a bit of morality in everything, but sums like that are inconsiderate."
