Juventus set to offer Marco Storari contract extension until 2014 - report

Struggling Serie A giants Juventus are keen to retain experienced goalkeeper Marco Storari and are ready to offer the 34-year-old shot-stopper a contract extension until the summer of 2014, La Gazzetta dello Sport reports.

Storari joined Juventus from Milan in the summer of 2010, and the veteran glovesman has since proven to be a more than able understudy to first-choice custodian Gianluigi Buffon.

The former Messina star put in a stellar performance at the weekend to help Juve to a 2-0 win over Roma.

It seems unlikely that Storari will get much playing time when Buffon is fully match fit, but the latter is continually being linked with a move away from la Vecchia Signora, and therefore Storari could become the club's number one in the near future.

The Turin side are expected to open contract talks with Storari in the upcoming weeks, and he could well sign a new three-year deal before the end of the season.
