Inter are preparing to bid for Real Madrid’s Iker Casillas if Samir Handanovic leaves, according to reports in Spain.
The Spanish international may soon be surplus to requirements at Bernabeu, with Manchester United’s David De Gea believed to be close to moving to Los Merengues.
Onda Cero reports that Inter have approached Casillas’ representatives, to talk about a possible move to San Siro for next season.
The move would be contingent on current ‘keeper Samir Handanovic leaving the club, with the Nerazzurri potentially looking to bring in a fee for the Slovenian, rather than have him leave for free next year.
That would leave Roberto Mancini short of experienced options between the posts, so Inter could look for a cut-price deal on Casillas, whose contract is also up in June 2016.
However, Onda Cero believes that incoming Coach Rafa Benitez is keen to hold on to the World Cup winner, with the asking price set at €15m.
With the Nerazzurri keen to invest elsewhere in the squad, it’s thought they would only do business below €10m.
