Vidic Plus Cash For Buffon? You're Having A Laugh

One of the dumbest rumours ever is going around in the press: Gianluigi Buffon apparently wants out of Juventus and Manchester United are ready to offer Nemanja Vidic plus 20m for the Italian goalkeeper.

Funniest rumour ever. Buffon has been a world-class goalkeeper in his prime but his form over the past two seasons suggests that decline has begun. He also had problems with injuries so he's not what he was.

Besides, a Vidic plus 20m deal would mean that Buffon is valued around 40-50m. No goalkeeper would be ever worth that kind of money. It is an important position but not THAT important. Barcelona won six trophies last year with Victor Valdes in goal, for heaven's sake.
