"Arsene Wenger asked about me" - World's best makes shock claim ahead of Champions League Final

By

Juventus goalkeeper Gianluigi Buffon has revealed that he was approached by Arsenal but decided to stay in Italy.

The Gunners opened talks with the goalkeeper when they were facing serious problems in goal at the time when Manuel Almunia and Lukasz Fabianski were fighting for a regular place.

Back then, manager Arsene Wenger made a move to sign the experienced Italian who is considered by many as the world's best goalkeeper but Buffon decided not to leave the Bianconeri.

"From what I know, there have been three serious times when English clubs made an approach for me," Buffon is quoted as saying by Sky Sports.

"Two of them were when I was a young player at Parma, and I know Alex Ferguson and Arsene Wenger asked about me - and then, when Manchester City was taken over, I know they approached Juventus.

"There are many reasons why none of the deals happened.

"Even though the Premier League is a special league, I have always wanted to stay loyal to Juventus.

"I have always been very successful here. I would not have changed anything."
