Handanovic Tipped to Retire and Come Back to Inter

Samir Handanovic didn’t find a new team in the summer after the conclusion of his contract with Inter. He’s considering retiring because the offers he received weren’t satisfactory. If he makes such a call, he’ll head back to the team where he spent a decade, SportMediaset informs.

The goalkeeper was linked only to Lazio for a backup role as far as Serie A teams are concerned. The Biancocelesti weighed him and Hugo Lloris for a while. Ultimately, they opted for Luigi Sepe on loan from Salernitana to back up Ivan Provedel.

Handanovic is the most-capped goalkeeper in the history of Inter and is tenth overall. The club will happily take him back once he formally hangs his gloves. He could help Simone Inzaghi or have a different role within the management. The parties will discuss in the next few days, Gianluca Di Marzio informs.

The Slovenian talisman began last season as a starter, but André Onana quickly supplanted him. La Beneamata decided not to re-up his expiring deal even though they were in limbo and needed multiple shot-stoppers at one point. They overhauled the position by adding Yann Sommer, Emil Audero, and Raffaele Di Gennaro. Previous third-stringer Alex Cordaz headed to Saudi Arabia.

Handanovic served as the Inter captain from 2019 to 2023. He lifted the Scudetto once and the Supercoppa Italiana and the Coppa Italia twice each.
