Gianluigi Buffon is expected to return to action for Juventus on Tuesday.
The Italy keeper has finally recovered from the shoulder injury which has sidelined him since pre-season, as well as the foot problem hampering him in recent weeks.
Juve coach Fabio Capello is likely to play Buffon in the Cup match against Fiorentina, with one eye on the weekend's crucial Serie A clash with Reggina.
"I am ready," the shot-stopper announced. "We will see if I play or not, but I am quite calm about it. I have played 300 matches in Serie A."
Buffon also shrugged off rumours of a transfer to either Real Madrid or Manchester United.
"As for transfer speculation, I can only say that it is journalists creating it. I am fine here," he insisted.
