Barcelona To Tempt Gianluigi Buffon - Report

The Blaugrana have laid eyes upon the Italian international...

Barcelona have reacted to Gianluigi Buffon's agent's attempt to invite offers, and they are ready to trade, according to reports.

On Thursday Silvano Martina revealed that he would be all ears and ready to play a high stakes game with the cash-rich clubs of Europe. The agent revealed mega money offers would be considered.

Sportmediaset.it reports that the Blaugrana have already began the process of luring the Italian international to the Camp Nou. Martina has already met with directors at Barcelona as both parties work on a version of a deal that they all can agree on.

Voices surrounding the Catalonian club suggest Victor Valdes will not be given a contract extension, his current deal expires in 2010. Joan Laporta has, in the past, made promises of big player arrivals, and Buffon could be the first in line.

Reports in Italy suggest Barcelona are ready to put €50million on the table in an attempt to persuade the club to sell up their star man. However, Juventus president Giovanni Cobolli Gigli recently suggested that Buffon was not for sale. In any case, the chief is likely to listen if the Blaugrana come along with serious cash.
