Storari happy with Juventus role

Marco Storari says he’s happy to remain at Juventus despite the likelihood of a reserve role in Turin.

The 35-year-old has been linked with a variety of Serie A clubs who could offer him their No 1 shirt, but he’ll remain as back up to Gigi Buffon with the Italian champions.

“I haven’t personally received any offers,” the custodian told Sky Sport Italia from the Old Lady’s Chatillon training base.

“I still have two years left on my contract and the thought of leaving has never entered my head,” he continued.

“I agreed with the club to extend my contract last season in order to prolong my career here. We’ll see what happens, but I’m happy.”

Storari was signed from Milan, via Sampdoria, in the summer of 2010 after Buffon was sidelined for six months with an injury sustained at the World Cup.

Yesterday, new goalkeeper Nicola Leali’s agent confirmed that the summer signing from Brescia would be sent out on loan given the competition for the gloves in Turin.
