Manchester United have been given fresh hope of landing Inter Milan goalkeeper Samir Handanovic following the contract rebel’s latest admission about his future.
The 30-year-old, who has little more than 12 months remaining on his contract, has refused to go on record with confirmation that he intends to remain at the San Siro.
Respected Italian journalist Gianluca Di Marzio reports on his website that Handanovic has left the door open to his suitors by saying: “I know my extension is being discussed, but it isn’t just a matter of money, there are also other factors. My ambition is to win.”
Much is likely to depend on the future of current Red Devils number one, David de Gea. The Spain international is also due to enter the final year of his contract, and is yet to put pen to paper on a fresh agreement.
After a superb season between the posts there is sure to be no shortage of admirers looking to snap up the former Atletico Madrid man, but if the Red Devils manage to persuade him to stay, they are unlikely to pursue another high-profile goalkeeper when the summer transfer window opens.
