Inter Didn’t Look For A Long-Term Replacement For Handanovic Due To Financial Constraints

Inter did not replace veteran goalkeeper Samir Handanovic due to financial constraints.

As reported in today’s paper edition of the Milano based newspaper Libero, the 37-year-old Slovenian goalkeeper made an obvious mistake yesterday, with his wayward pass to Marcelo Brozovic allowing Hellas Verona’s Ivan Ilic to score the opener in yesterday’s match.

Despite the early deficit, Inter still won the game 3-1, but Handanovic’s early error highlights the Milanese club’s need to replace the veteran.

The problem is that Inter were unable to sign a long-term replacement for the 37-year-old Slovenian shot stopper due to financial constraints, which is why Romelu Lukaku, Achraf Hakimi and Antonio Conte left earlier this summer.

The 37-year-old Handanovic is still a reliable and experienced goalkeeper, but with his contract expiring next year in 2022, the Milanese club need to start exploring long-term alternatives soon.

Handanovic will be hoping to put this performance behind him during the upcoming international break, and he is likely to start against Sampdoria on 12th September.
