Inter Could ‘Reserve’ Juan Musso For When Samir Handanovic Leaves Next Summer, Italian Media Suggest

Inter have not decided yet on a strategy for their goalkeeping situation next season, according to a report in the Italian media today.

As per Gazzetta.it, Samir Handanovic is expected to remain in goal as things stand but Inter have not ruled out the possibility of signing a new goalkeeper anyway.

Juan Musso is one of Inter’s preferred choices to succeed Handanovic, but the Udinese shot-stopper is worth €30 million and cannot realistically be signed to act as back-up.

One way around the problem, according to this report, could be to ‘reserve’ Musso for next season when Handanovic’s contract expires (assuming he doesn’t renew) – although this is nothing more than an idea for now.

Inter have to decide whether they want their new goalkeeper to be a back-up for Handanovic or another first-choice option, because this will make a huge difference to who they pursue.

Musso is unlikely to agree to join the Nerazzurri if he cannot start in goal, but Inter would also find it difficult to invest a lot of money in a second-choice keeper.

Inter have hardly ever tried to make two top goalkeepers co-exist, the Milan-based publication explained, with a rare exception under Roberto Mancini when Francesco Toldo battled against Alberto Fontana and Julio Cesar.

There has always been clarity between the sticks apart from that, leading this report to suggest that Musso and Handanovic are unlikely to be at Inter together next season.
