Inter Could Sign Hellas Verona’s Marco Silvestri To Compete With Samir Handanovic, Italian Media Suggest

Inter could sign ‘their own Gigi Buffon’ in the summer to compete with Samir Handanovic in goal, a report in the Italian media suggested today.

As per Gazzetta.it, the Nerazzurri have two options if they want to sign a goalkeeper in the summer, namely Udinese’s Juan Musso and Hellas Verona’s Marco Silvestri.

Musso is worth €30 million and cannot realistically be signed as a back-up, but Silvestri is valued at €8-10 million and could represent an ideal compromise for Inter.

Silvestri could take on the role of Buffon at Juventus, occasionally replacing Handanovic in goal while accepting a regular spot on the bench.

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, but Silvestri could be a low-cost solution for Inter if they want Handanovic to have some kind of competition.

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.

According to this report, the only certainty at present is that Andrei Radu and Daniele Padelli (who could rejoin Udinese) will leave the Nerazzurri at the end of the season.
