Lucescu was in talks with the agent of the great Italian goalkeeper.

Former coach of Shakhtar Donetsk Mircea Lucescu said that the Juventus legend Gianluigi Buffon could move into the camp of “miners”.

“Yes, it’s true. I flew to Italy in order to speak with his agent. We then had difficulties with the position of goalkeeper, because of this, we looked at Buffon. It seemed to us that he will come to us.

We feared no-one, played on a par with the top teams of Europe. I belonged to Gigi with respect. We did not purchase it, because he wanted to win the Champions League with Juventus.

7 years later he still shows a great level. I think he could serve up to 45 years”, – said Mircea in an interview with Tutto Juve

Gianluigi last year returned to Juventus after one season at PSG. This season he has played 11 matches in all competitions, conceding 9 goals three times and kept a clean sheet.
