Report: Handanovic until 2022

Inter have reportedly agreed to extend Samir Handanovic’s current deal with one year and tie the former Slovenia international to San Siro until 2022.

La Gazzetta dello Sport writes that the Nerazzurri have come to an agreement with the goalkeeper to extend his contract with 12 months.

Handanovic’s current deal expires in June 2021, but the newspaper claims that the former Udinese keeper will stay on for an additional year and sign the deal this summer.

It means the soon-to-be 36-year-old will stay at the Giuseppe Meazza for 10 years after arriving from the Friuli in July 2012.

Handanovic, who was halted by injury in 2020, has kept seven clean sheets in his 22 League matches this term, only conceding 20 goals in Serie A 2019-20.

The report also claims that Inter have identified Udinese first-choice Juan Musso as the perfect back-up to Handanovic in Milan, as coach Antonio Conte wants to bring in a reliable second choince between the sticks.

Musso arrived in Udine from Racing Club in July 2018 and has established himself as the No1 of the Friuli, keeping nine clean sheets in 26 Serie A games in 2019-20.
