First-choice Inter goalkeeper Samir Handanovic could face competition for his starting spot from his backup Andrei Radu this season.
This according to today’s print edition of Milan-based newspaper Gazzetta dello Sport, who report that the Slovenian’s poor recent form to begin the season could open the door for Radu who has impressed in training.
Handanovic has been trusted with the unquestioned starting spot at the Giuseppe Meazza since joining Inter from Udinese in the summer of 2012, but the 37-year-old’s recent error to gift Hellas Verona a goal highlighted some problems which have arisen in his game.
Meanwhile, Radu has impressed in training with both his shot-stopping ability and his capacity to play with the ball at his feet, meaning that the Nerazzurri and coach Simone Inzaghi could have a decision on their hands.
Radu rejected possible moves to the likes of Real Sociedad and Hellas Verona over the course of the summer, and he could find himself with regular playing time at Inter ahead of his senior teammate.
