Inter captain Samir Handanovic could still be the club’s starting goalkeeper for the beginning of next season whilst Andre Onana settles into his role in the club.
This according to today’s print edition of Turin-based newspaper Tuttosport, who report that the 37-year-old could still be first-choice ahead of Onana in the early part of the upcoming campaign.
Onana is all set to arrive on a free transfer from Ajax, and he has been designated as the player who will succeed Handanovic in the long term.
However, Handanovic will also remain at the club, as the Slovenian has every intention of extending his contract, and could well retain his starting spot in goal.
Onana will compete for the starting spot with the Nerazzurri captain in the short term but may not be handed the start right away, while the plan is still very much for the Cameroonian to be the starter in the long term.
