Shut down the internet. It’s been a good ride.

Gianluigi Buffon, yes THAT one, has been “linked” to Leeds United.

Phil Hay quits the YEP and now everything is going even more bonkers than usual. Yes, the 41 year-old former Juventus keeper and World Cup winner who recently left PSG is linked with Leeds. He’s reportedly had offers from FC Porto and Atalanta, teams that are in the Champions League, but sure, he’ll drop all of that to go play for Marcelo Bielsa in the Championship.

Whatever wages Buffon will be asking for cannot be afforded by any team in the Championship, and he doesn’t even play the kind of style that Bielsa likes, but sure, why not.

So go home everyone, peak rumour banter has been achieved.
