Udinese keep hold of Handanovic

Udinese have told clubs interested in Samir Handanovic that he is likely to remain with them next season.

The goalkeeper has been paired with moves to sides in Italy and Europe, but Fabrizio Larini has cooled the transfer speculation.

"These stories are just rumours," the Udinese sporting director told calciomercato.it.

"As it stands, Samir is our goalkeeper right now and he will probably still be ours during the next campaign too."

The Stadio Friuli outfit, who have qualified for the Champions League, are expected to sell a couple of big name players this summer.

Midfielder Gokhan Inler is wanted by Napoli and Juventus, amongst many other European sides.

Star attacker Alexis Sanchez, valued at €35m, will also be sold with Inter and Barcelona leading that particular chase.

Handanovic has been paired with Roma, Manchester United, Arsenal and Atletico Madrid in recent months.
