Wojciech Szczesny’s agent says his client loves Juventus and ‘there’s no problem if Gigi Buffon renews with the club.’
The Polish international has had a great run in the side but has returned to the bench following the return of Buffon.
“Szczesny loves Juventus and the fans, and he has an extraordinary relationship with Buffon,” Jonathan Barnett told Tuttosport.
“If he renews it’s no problem for us. Juventus did an incredible deal to buy Szczesny at that price.
“They were good and quick in understanding his enormous potential before everyone. Wojciech will become one of the best goalkeepers in the world, just you watch.”
“Gareth Bale? I am reminded of the pen that Florentino Perez, a gentleman like few others, gave me to sign the contracts.
“I still have it, but what matters most is the great relationship I’ve developed with Florentino.
“Today Bale would be worth at least €222m but Gareth is very happy in Madrid, he loves Real.
“Gareth doesn’t need Ronaldo to leave, even now he’s one of Real’s stars.
“He’s a role model for kids, he doesn’t drink alcohol, and he’s very attentive to what he eats – he never buys fast food and he goes to bed very early.
“I don’t think Bale is any worse than Neymar, so he can fight for the Ballon d’Or too.
“Could he have joined Juventus? No. The most concrete interest came from another Italian club, but I can’t tell you any more than that. Tottenham said no though.
“Will he ever move to Italy? He’s happy at Real Madrid. In football you can never say never… but I honestly don’t think any Italian club could afford Bale.”
