Gianluigi Buffon Will Be Back Playing For Juventus In January - Agent

Not long to go before Juventus have Gianluigi Buffon back at their disposal...
Juventus can expect to have Gianluigi Buffon back in the new year.

Buffon has been out since suffering a herniated disc during the World Cup. He had surgery and his recovery is going well.

His return seems to be pivoting towards a full and syncopated swing, reveals agent Silvano Martina.

"Buffon is continuing his recovery programme in complete harmony with the club's medical staff," Martina told

"His return remains confirmed for January. He is coming back from a big injury."

Italy's number one goalkeeper has been linked with an exit. Reports on Wednesday claimed Martina was in talks with Giuseppe Marotta over his client's future.

"I have known Marotta for 40 years now and so we always talk," was the short and sharp response from the agent.
