Inter Milan have hired PSG goalkeeping coach Gianluca Spinelli, who will replace Adriano Bonaiuti at the club.

This according to today’s print edition of Rome-based newspaper Corriere dello Sport, via FCInterNews, who report that only the official announcement remains for the Nerazzurri to confirm the 56-year-old’s arrival.

Bonaiuti has been Inter goalkeeping coach since 2013, having worked with captain Samir Handanovic throughout that period.

However, the captain is no longer first-choice.

It remains to be seen whether Handanovic will depart this summer. Moreover, Andre Onana could also be on his way.

What is clear, however, is that a sea change is on the way in goal. If Onana is to leave, Shakhtar Donetsk’s Anatoliy Trubin, Valencia’s Giorgi Mamardashvili, or Atalanta’s Marco Carnesecchi could replace him.

Whoever the first-choice goalkeeper is next season, they’ll have a different goalkeeping coach than Bonaiuto.

Inter To Appoint PSG Goalkeeping Coach Gianluca Spinelli

Spinelli has a long association with former Inter coach Antonio Conte, although he never worked with the 53-year-old whilst he was in charge at the Nerazzurri.

Spinelli first worked with Conte when the former Juventus and Tottenham Hotspur boss was in charge of the Italian national national team between 2014 and 2016.

Then, the goalkeeping coach followed Conte to Chelsea, staying at Stamford Bridge between 2016 and 2018. There, he helped the coach to lift the Premier League title in his first season at the helm.

When Conte left the Blues at the end of the 2017-18 campaign, Spinelli also left.

However, the goalkeeping coach immediately found a new club in the form of PSG.

Spinelli followed former Italy and Juventus goalkeeper Gianluigi Buffon to the French capital, where he has remained for the past five years.

Whilst Buffon then left PSG to rejoin the Bianconeri, and then Parma where he currently plays, Spinelli stayed at the club, working with Buffon’s successor as Azzurri Number One Gianluigi Donnarumma, who joined from AC Milan in the summer of 2021.

However, Spinelli is out of contract with PSG now. And Inter are the club who will capitalize by hiring the experienced coach.

Spinelli also worked with current Atalanta boss Gian Piero Gasperini at Genoa.
