Inter captain Samir Handanovic is focusing on this season and on being at his best for his club despite links to Ajax’s Andre Onana as a long-term successor to him in goal.
This according to Italian broadcaster Sky Sport Italia, who report that the 37-year-old is not letting criticism or the fact that he is in the last season of his contract get to his head.
Inter have been reportedly in the hunt for a younger goalkeeper who could be a long-term successor to Handanovic for some time, with Onana thought to be the player they’ve settled on with an agreement in place for the Cameroonian to join next summer.
This comes amid recent criticism of Handanovic over some high-profile errors that the Slovenian has made at the beginning of the season.
The 37-year-old’s current deal is set to expire at the end of June 2022, but he could still agree on an extension even if Onana is brought in, with the possibility of staying alongside the Cameroonian.
At any rate, right now Handanovic is only focused on the challenges of the present season and on working to be at his best for the team.
