?Gianluigi Buffon reportedly turned down the chance to join both ?Manchester United and ?Manchester City before making an emotional return to ?Juventus this summer.

And now, according to the Daily Mail, Buffon rejected offers from both Manchester clubs before choosing to go back to Turin.

However, when the chance came by, Buffon couldn't resist return back to Juventus in order to give ?one last shot at winning the UEFA Champions League in the upcoming season.

The report claims that when Juventus president Andrea Agnelli came calling and assured Buffon that he would play at least 10 games next season in order to overtake ex-AC Milan defender Paolo Maldini as Serie A's all-time leading appearance maker, Buffon could not refuse.

However, he will earn far less than he could have done in England, and is expected to take home £1.35m by the end of the season as compared to almost double that was reportedly being offered at United or City.

The 41-year-old World Cup winner was available for a move after spending a year at Paris Saint-Germain and it initially looked like he would retire and move into a coaching role.

This is the only reason why he did not choose to make the move to the Premier League as he knew he would be a second choice goalkeeper behind David De Gea and Ederson respectively.
