Inter Considering Samir Handanovic’s Future After Blunder In Juventus Loss, Italian Media Claim
Inter are reflecting on Samir Handanovic’s future at the club after the goalkeeper’s costly mistake against Juventus in Tuesday’s Coppa Italia defeat, according to an Italian newspaper report today.
A report elsewhere on Thursday stated that the Nerazzurri still had complete faith in the Slovenian and were not prioritising the search for his successor.
However, Tuttosport’s print edition took a completely different stance, highlighting that Handanovic will turn 37 in July and has seen talks over a new contract at Inter frozen in recent weeks.
Inter are said to already have several names in mind when it comes to replacing Handanovic, who has played for the club as their undisputed number one goalkeeper for the last nine years.
Udinese’s Juan Musso remains the favourite to succeed Handanovic, with the Turin-based paper suggesting Inter could look to sign the Argentine in a double deal with his teammate Rodrigo De Paul.
Cagliari’s Alessio Cragno is another very popular name among Inter’s management, who already know they will need to meet with Rossoblu president Tommaso Giulini in the summer to discuss Radja Nainggolan’s future.
The outsiders are Napoli’s Alex Meret and Hellas Verona’s Marco Silvestri.
