Gianluigi Buffon has played down renewed speculation linking him with a move to Manchester United.
The Juventus goalkeeper continues to see his future called into question despite regular shows of commitment to his current employers.
The World Cup winner maintains that he has not altered his stance over recent weeks and has every intention of remaining in Turin.
His denials have done little to curb rumours suggesting he is a target of United, among others, with an imminent switch regularly touted.
For now, though, Buffon insists such speculation is nothing more than transfer gossip, with his attention focused solely on Juve's Serie A title tilt.
"I have no intention of leaving Juventus," the 32-year-old told Gazzetta dello Sport.
"I feel good here and I have no contract problems. My wish is to respect my contract and see it through until 2013. Then we will see if there is the option to renew.
"Manchester United? They are a great team I have faced a few times and have a few bitter memories of, nothing else."
Buffon is currently sidelined with a long-running back problem which flared up again at the 2010 World Cup.
He is, however, closing on a return to full fitness and hopes to be back in the first-team fold in the New Year.
"Before Christmas I hope to be back training with the group," he said.
"Then I will need about another month before playing again. Let's say about the end of January."
