Bayern youngster Gaudino signs new contract

​The Bavarian giants have tied the 18-year-old to his first professional, while reserve goalkeeper Tom Starke was given an extension

Bayern Munich have handed new contracts to goalkeeper Tom Starke and teenage prospect Gianluca Gaudino.

Bayern confirmed that 18-year-old Gaudino has signed his first professional contract.

The midfielder has made six appearances for Pep Guardiola’s side this season and has agreed a four-year contract that keeps him with the club until 2018. 

Starke is the third choice shot stopper at the Bavarian club, behind Manuel Neuer Pepe Reina in the pecking order and he is yet to make an appearance in any competition.

The 33-year-old has not started for Bayern since March when Neuer was rested in the build-up to the Bavarian side’s Champions League clash with Manchester United.

However, despite his lack of activity, Starke has been rewarded with a new deal by the club and will continue his battle between the sticks with Ballon d’Or nominee Neuer, Reina and Leopold Zingerle.
