Bookies Slash Odds on Italy Legend Gigi Buffon Joining Leeds United This Summer

Legendary Italian goalkeeper Gigi Buffon could be set for a shock stint in English football – after bookmakers slashed the odds on the veteran shot-stopper signing for Leeds United this summer.

Moreover, Oddschanger have reported that odds on Buffon actually signing for the Yorkshire club have dropped from 7/1 to just 5/2 today:

Are we about to see one of the greatest goalkeepers of all-time rock up in the English Championship?
