Inter Working To Sign Granada Goalkeeper Rui Silva On Free Transfer, Italian Media Reveal
Inter are working on a deal to sign Granada goalkeeper Rui Silva this summer, according to an Italian newspaper report today.
As per Corriere dello Sport’s print edition, the Nerazzurri have made progress on the Silva signing front but face intense competition for the Portuguese shot-stopper’s services.
Silva’s contract with Granada is due to expire at the end of the season, meaning Inter can sign him on a free transfer, aside from commission payments to his agents.
The 26-year-old would not command a particularly high salary, making a deal feasible for Inter given the club’s current economic difficulties.
It is still too early to tell whether Silva could be a long-term replacement for Samir Handanovic, with Inter planning to sign him as a back-up before assessing his ability and potential up close.
This season the former Nacional goalkeeper, who has been with Granada since January 2017, has made 29 appearances, in which he has kept 11 clean sheets.
