A move to The Premiership remains a possibility for Gianluigi Buffon, who looks to be part of the Juventus exodus - should they be demoted from Serie A.
The Italian champions are due to learn their fate this week over the match-fixing scandal which has rocked the country over the past few months.
Buffon, along with many of his Juve team-mates, is now considering his future.
Milan have emerged as a shock possibility, while England also remains a possible destination - but Internazionale, Real Madrid and Chelsea will not enter the bidding.
"Yes, there is an option of Milan, but Inter do not have an interest," the keeper's agent Silvano Martina told Affaritaliani.
"But we have to be cautious as the Rossoneri has Dida.
"The Nerazzurri have not asked, and they won't and it is 100 percent about Real. They have Casillas the Spanish goalkeeper.
"There is something in England, but that is not simple - but The Blues [Chelsea] are covered."
Martina has previously confirmed Arsenal's interest in his client and reports continue to link Buffon with a move to North London.
Should Juve be relegated, then Martina says Buffon will leave - but only for the right offer.
"It would be right for Juventus and Buffon to go their separate ways if they were demoted to Serie B," he added.
"However, it is clear that Buffon could stay if the club didn't receive an offer that they were happy with. After all, it wouldn't be the end of the world if that happened."
