“From what I know, there have been three serious times when English clubs made an approach for me,” Buffon told The Mirror.

“Two of them were when I was a young player at Parma, and I know Alex Ferguson and Arsène 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.”
