Marco Storari to remain at Juventus despite interest from A.S Roma: Serie A news
The agent of Juventus goalkeeper, Marco Storari, has laughed off reports linking his client with a move to A.S Roma.
Storari is among several names linked with Roma to replace Liverpool bound, Alexander Doni. The Brazilian is on the verge of making a move to the Premier League giants and the Giallorossi are in the hunt for a new number one.
Other than Storari, the Giallorossi are also linked with a move for Ajax shot-stopper, Maarten Stekelenburg and Espanyol custodian, Carlos Kameni. The current number one at Stadio Olimpico Rome, Bogdan Lobont, did not have a memorable
time in the 2010/11 season and the club are looking to replace him with a big name keeper.
The agent of the former Napoli keeper has dismissed reports linking his client with Roma and believes that they want a foreign goalkeeper. He confirmed that the talks are mere rumour and the Giallorossi officials have not contacted
Talking to the reporters the agent said, “I think they want a foreign ‘keeper. It seems to be a bit far out there to even talk about. Storari to Roma seems to be the joke of the moment. There has never been any contact with Roma
sporting director Walter Sabatini, also because I’m convinced that they want to sign a foreign goalkeeper and not an Italian.
“That’s why there hasn’t been any contact and why I believe it will be very difficult for a call to arrive. At least that is what I hear from the people in Rome who know about these things.”
Storari currently plays as an understudy to Gianluigi Buffon and managed to make 29 appearances in all competitions during his absence. The 34-year-old has played for several top Italian clubs in the past and his experience could
prove to be vital if the Giallorossi enquire about his services.
However, the media reports suggest that Roma manager, Luis Enrique, is keen to bring Stekelenburg at the club and they are in advanced talks to sign the Dutch international.
