Gianluigi Buffon has rejected a move to LaLiga giants Barcelona because he wants to be the No 1 keeper at his next club, according to reports. The Italian goalkeeper has had offers from several clubs across Europe after announcing his plans to leave Juventus this summer.

Claims to fame. His €27m transfer from Sevilla to Madrid in 2005, when aged 19, is still a record fee for a Spanish teenager. Ramos has scored in 17 consecutive Liga campaigns – a record for a defender. He netted 13 goals on all fronts for Madrid in 2019/20, a personal best for a single season.
