Storari’s future in doubt

Marco Storari is considering his long-term future at Juventus after Gianluigi Buffon’s return to fitness saw him relegated to the substitutes’ bench. Storari has stated before that he could quit the Bianconeri if he spends most of his time on the sidelines.
Buffon, Juve’s long-standing goalkeeper, sustained a back injury in Italy’s first game of last summer’s World Cup, and only made his return to action in the midweek round of Coppa Italia fixtures against Catania.
During Buffon’s absence, Storari has admirably replaced him and has been one of Serie A’s best keepers this season, but could now lose his position to the returning World Cup winner.
The 34-year-old was signed in the summer as a temporary replacement for Buffon, but cost Juventus €4.5 million from Sampdoria on a three-year deal, so they may not be keen on selling him after just a few months.
He is somewhat of a journeyman, having had 12 stints at 11 different clubs in Italy and Spain, and it is reported that he would like to add another club to his long list during the January transfer window.
However, Storari’s form may have attracted the interest of other clubs as he seems to have enjoyed a late renaissance in his career. Buffon has also been linked with a move away from Juventus, however Manchester City have confirmed they are not interested.
The 32-year-old is expected to remain as the Bianconeri’s first-choice goalkeeper for the rest of the campaign while Storari may have to make do with the bench. Welcome Bonus Offer Betway
