Juventus goalkeeper Gianluigi Buffon has revealed he would leave the club should he be the subject of a "fantasy football bid" like that made for Kaka.

AC Milan playmaker Kaka was targeted by Manchester City in a big money move but the Brazilian rejected the offer because of his love for the San Siro.

Buffon has also been linked with a move to City but Juventus chief executive Jean-Claude Blanc has repeatedly denied that the 30-year-old is for sale.

The goalkeeper, who was close to joining Milan two years ago, insists he would leave the Turin side, but only if a huge bid came in.

"I am a man of football," Buffon told Gazzetta dello Sport. "I know you have to do your sums and I know teams are also businesses.

"Therefore, if a fantasy football bid came in I would be ready to go.

"I would also do it to relieve a justifiable embarrassment from a club like Juventus, to whom I owe so much."
