Francesco Bardi doesn’t expect to be defending the goal of Inter next season. “Samir Handanovic will still be there.”
The 21-year-old belongs to the Nerazzurri and has impressed this term while on loan in Serie B with Novara.
As a result, he’s been suggested as a possible replacement for Handanovic given that he’s been paired with Barcelona.
“I’m not thinking about the transfer market,” the Italian Under-21 international noted. “My only objective is to finish the season well.
“With regards to Handanovic, he is a great goalkeeper but I personally believe that he’ll stay at Inter.
“I’m happy at Novara and I wouldn’t be against the idea of staying for another season either.”
Although an Inter fan, Bardi admits that he watches as many Juventus games as possible. “I often watch them in order to observe Gigi Buffon – my idol!”
