Gianluigi Buffon completed his return to Juventus on Thursday, but his agent has confirmed the veteran shot-stopper had received offers from English Premier League sides.
After parting ways with Paris Saint-Germain after just one season, the 41-year-old made a surprise return to Turin after penning a one-year deal with the Old Lady.
FC Porto were one of the sides interested in Buffon but his agent, Silvano Martina, claims there was a lot of interest from England.
“He had many offers, especially from the Premier League and from other large teams," Martina told Daily Mail.
“I don't name names, it's not in my style but I think you won't have problems understanding.
“Buffon has always made choices with his heart and never for his wallet. You can compare his return home to that of a husband who after an escapade can't wait to hug his wife again.”
