OFFICIAL: Marco Storari Extends Milan Stay
Milan have handed a contract extension to 40-year-old goalkeeper Marco Storari.
The veteran returned for a second spell at Milan from Cagliari in January on a six-month deal, with Gabriel moving in the opposite direction on loan. Storari did not feature for the Rossoneri this term, but they have nonetheless opted to hand him a 1-year renewal as an experienced back-up for teenage sensation Gianluigi Donnarumma.
“Despite not having played, the goalkeeper has had a significant role in the past six months. He has been important for the growth and improvement of Donnarumma, Plizzari and Guarnone”, a club statement read.

After loan spells with Levante, Cagliari, Fiorentina and Sampdoria, left the Milanese side on a permanent basis in 2010, signing a contract with Juventus. He returned to Cagliari in 2015.
