Inter are about to welcome goalkeeper Alex Cordaz back to the club, Crotone’s sporting director has confirmed.
The Nerazzurri are beginning to plan for life after Samir Handanovic with the Slovenian about to turn 37.
Cordaz will not replace Handanovic though, instead acting as Daniele Padelli’s successor after the Italian went back to Udinese.
“I can confirm Cordaz will be a new Inter player, he’ll go there,” Crotone’s sporting director Beppe Ursino told Calciomercato.com today.
“He’s written Crotone’s history but it’s right he finishes his career where he started it.
“It’s a great source of satisfaction for us.”
Cordaz joined Inter’s academy back in 1999, when he was 16 years old, and spent three years there before graduating into the first team.
He never made an appearance for the senior side and eventually left in 2005, moving to plenty of clubs in Italy’s lower leagues.
Crotone picked him up in 2015 and he has since made 248 appearances in all competitions for the Rossoblu, helping them secure two promotions to Serie A.
Now the 38-year-old is coming back to Inter to finish his career, hoping to help Simone Inzaghi’s side defend the Serie A title.
